Notice MSB00774870
Notice Type Easement


Type: Access (MSB004870) Fish Creek Conservation Easement

A snow depth and trail condition inspection was performed on April 27, 2021. Based on the information gathered, the Great Land Trust (GLT) determined that; “….with the warm temperatures the snow conditions within the Conservation Easement are no longer adequate to protect the underlying vegetation.”  Based on GLTs determination the FCCA trails located south of Gonder Road near Big Lake are closed to dogsledding and grooming activities at this time.

In addition, the gate near the kiosk on Gonder Road will be closed for the summer it may be opened for road maintenance or other activities on the ROW to the ADMC Club house (note: please close and lock the gate when not in use). 

Any changes affecting future trail conditions will be updated through Matanuska Susitna Borough Public Notice webpage, e-mails, and will be posted at the Gonder Road kiosk.

Please be aware there are several beetle killed spruce trees near the Kiosk at Gonder Road that could present a potential hazard to vehicles and/or other activities along this section of Gonder Road. The MSB is working with GLT to manage this issue.

Due to damage to the existing lock, a new lock has been installed on the Gonder Road gate and the combination has been changed.  The new combination is available from the MSB Land and Resource Management Office at 861-7863 on request from authorized ADMC members.
