The Alaska ATV Club will be sweeping the trailhead with a large magnet for nails in the next 2-3 weeks. The worst areas are of course where any campfire or bonfire has been, anywhere near the treeline is bad also.
Last year we took out 1-1/2 30 gallon garbage cans of nails over a two day period. We will have somebody attempting to guide people into the area just swept so please listen to them. Last year people just drove by us ignoring the frantic waving until we lifted the magnet up so they could get an idea as to how bad it is out there. We are trying to make up for over 20 years of pallet bonfires.
