Matanuska-Susitna Borough

: Trapper Creek / Petersville Winter Trails - Open

A winter trail system consisting of two north-south trails and one east-west route that allow snowmachiners, dog mushers and skiers to travel the area lying north of Petersville Road and west of the Parks Highway. The combined mileage of the trails is over 50 miles. The trails traverse large swamps and Black Spruce forests and are generally wide enough for one snowmachine (3-5’). In some places along the trails the tracks are wide enough for two machines to pass. On clear days the trails offer spectacular views of the Alaska Range and Mount Denali to the north.
