Type: Access (MSB004870) Fish Creek Conservation Easement

A snow depth and trail condition inspection was performed on December 20, 2021. Based on the information gathered, the Great Land Trust (GLT) determined that; “….with the cold temperatures and recent snow fall the snow conditions within the Conservation Easement are adequate to protect the underlying vegetation.”  Based on GLTs determination the FCCA trails located south of Gonder Road near Big Lake are OPEN to dogsledding and grooming activities at this time.

In addition, the gate near the kiosk on Gonder Road is open and will remain open for the winter. 

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.
