Heads on Beluga Mountain, flows South and North-West 45 miles (72 km) to Skwentna River, 56 miles (90 km) North-West of Tyonek, Alaska.[2]

This river begins at Judd Lake. It is inaccessible by road. And, it has its own support group.[6]

The Talachulitna is popular for fly-in rafting and fishing trips. There are special restrictions on fishing: rainbow trout & steelhead are "catch & release" only and only single-hook lures can be used.[7]

More information is available from a log of a 1976 river resource study for the Alaska State Division of Lands.[8]
