ATTENTION: The Lower Albert Loop Trail (north end segment) is under construction from mid-February through May 2017. Please watch for signage and/or heavy equipment.
Sunshine and warmer temperatures are making trail conditions variable throughout the day. In places with less sunshine you'll find icy spots
and in other areas you'll find some standing water, mud or soft snow. It's that time of year called "break-up"! Difficult to manuever
Rodak Nature Trail:Icy in the mornings. Snow slush, mud and wet spots.
Albert Loop from ERNC Trailhead to Eagle River: Icy in the mornings. Snow slush, mud and wet spots. You may "punch through"
the softening snow especially if you get off to the sides of the trail.
Historic Iditarod Trail (ERNC Trailhead) to Echo Bend: Break-up conditions: a bit of everything.
Dew Mound Trail: Foot packed, however it may still be advantageous to wear snowshoes for some sections of this 6 mile loop trail. This trail doesn't
get as much foot traffic as our other trails during the winter.
Feel free to call us for trail condition updates during our open hours (Oct-April: Friday-Sunday, 10am-5pm; May-Sept: Wednesday-Sunday 10am-5pm):
