    Default Trailhead and hot-spot GPS Coordinates!

    Well with the proliferation of automotive GPS units that are getting more reasonable in price every day, I think it would be a great idea, especially for the new comers to Alaska if we could post GPS coordinates for the more commonly used ATV trails and major points of interest in the state. That said, here is what I got, and you can add what you have if you feel so inclined;

    Eklutna Lake Trail (Sunday thru Wednesday)
    N 61 24 36.2
    W 149 08 58.2

    Hatcher’s Pass (about midway between Willow and Palmer, or 2 miles E of the old “last chance coffee house”)
    N 61 45 35.3
    W 149 38 29.0

    Shirley Towne Trailhead (on the way to Hatcher’s from the Willow side)
    N 61 46 45.7
    W 149 54 06.6

    King’s River Trailhead (North East of Palmer)
    N 61 44.100
    W 148 45.100

    Kenai Dip net area (beach access) on the south side of the river
    N 60 31 51.9
    W 151 16 13.8

    Kasilof Dip net area (beach access) on the south side of the river
    N 60 22 56.9
    W 151 19 17.8

    Puriton creek Trailhead (North East of Palmer)
    N 61 48 17.8
    W 148 05 20.0

    Clam Gulch Campground and beach access
    N 60 14 17.1
    W 151 23 46.3

    Forks Roadhouse (Petersville)
    N 62 22 21.5
    W 150 43 55.5

    Deep Creek Campground and beach access
    N 60 01 41.2
    W 151 42 16.0

    Anchor Point beach access
    N 59 46 25.4
    W 151 52 01.6

    Hope (the bar down town by the river. NO ATV TRAIL)
    N 60 55 13.4
    W 149 38 40.5

    Eklutna Tailrace (fishing only NO ATV TRAIL)
    N 61 28 34.8
    W 149 09 50.8

    Good idea. I'll have to dig into my GPS and pull out some points for the list.

    Let me guess you guys that think this is a bad idea personely located and built these riding spots your selves?

    Or did in fact some one tell you where they are located.

    Great idea for a thread thanks for the effort.

    Sorry. Haven’t checked this thread in a while. The picture is in fact of a squirrel and a couple of GI Joe’s that a friend sent to me. I thought it was hysterical so I have been using it. Wish I could claim it as my own, but alas………. I aint that clever.

    As for the intent of my first post; you know, hey………… it aint like any of these places are “big secrets” anyway, but they are hard enough to find to make it a pain in the arse for a first timer heading out to the trail head. All I was trying to do was help out some folks so they wouldn’t have to go thru all the BS that I did when I first started hitting the trails. So if you got a problem with that, then send me your address so I can ship you a can of turtle wax………

    You know………….. to “toughen up your shell little turtle!”
