Drive to the 12th mile marker on the Haines Highway. Be sure to slow down to see the routes in this area because one may never see it heading southbound on the highway. Park off the roadway as far as possible without getting stuck in a ditch. Travel 4 to 6 minutes through the brush and up a drainage to the main flow.
