    Default Hatcher pass open yet?

    Have this ride on my "To Do List " this year
    101 mi Hatcher loop.jpg

    Tour de The Mat/Su Valley

    101 mile Hatcher Pass loop
    a bit longer than the Hatcher pass epic

    Anyone help or suggestions ?
    Drove it last year, 20+ miles are gravel road,
    Plan to leave from home & ride thru Palmer to Farm loop & go oer the top to Willow

    You can do it whenever you want on a bicycle. The gate for vehicles usually doesn't open till late June/early July. With the low snowfall this year it may open earlier.

    Thanks
    I guess my next ride will be
    to see how far up I can go from the Palmer side

    Wonder how to interpret the Alaska "vehicle" rule for bikes:

    Treatment as a Vehicle
    In Alaska bicycles are vehicles according to the statute that defines vehicles and a person riding a bicycle has all of the rights and duties of the driver of a vehicle as provided in Chapter 13-02.
