Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Morgan Horse Trail - Open

The Morgan Horse Trail is a non-motorized year round trail, which is located between the Lazy Mountain Recreation Area on the north end and Maud Road on the south. It provides connections to the Lazy Mountain Trail (non-motorized), Matanuska Peak Trail (non-motorized) and the Plumley-Maud Trail (multi-use). It traverses the lower slope of Lazy Mountain and can be muddy in the spring.

The trail travels southeast through the recreation area and follows a section line easement going due south to Maud Road. The area is forested with large cottonwood, white spruce and birch. The trail passes close by homes, so please respect private property.

1/26/23 Due to unseasonably warm temps, many of the trails in the core area are in rough shape. Be aware that most trails are either very slick, punchy due to soft snow, have standing water on them, or are down to bare ground in places. If you find that you are making deep holes in the trail with your feet, skis, or tires, please consider straying off of the trails until they get some new snow or re-harden after a good freeze. If the trail is slick, come prepared with ice spikes.
