Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Crevasse Moraine Nordic Trail System - Open


Crevasse-Moraine has some 6.7 miles of trails built on ridges and depressions left behind by glaciers. The looping trails offer varying levels of difficulty from novice to expert, depending on the sport. Crevasse-Moraine trails connect to the more extensive trail system in the Matanuska Greenbelt. In summer, hiking, biking, running, and horseback riding take place.

In winter, with ample snow, the trails are groomed for cross-country skiing. Most loops offer both classic and skate skiing. Horseback riding is also allowed, during the winter months, on a trail that follows a road. A steep sledding hill near the lower parking lot offers extreme fun when padded with heavy snow.

12/5/23 The MSB Grooming Crew groomed the swamp loops, the stadium loops, and the outer and upper ridge loops. They also removed about 15 trees that were blocking the trail. More snow is needed to set classic tracks. We plan to groom the rest of the trail system this week if the weather allows. Enjoy!

High school cross-country ski and running teams train and hold meets here. Please check for trail closures. Dogs must be on a leash. Bug spray is needed often. This is a non-motorized trail system.
