    Default Where can I find trail maps for Alaska?

    Hi All,

    I'm new to Anchorage and this Forum. I was just wondering if there are any trail maps for Anchorage or Alaska available on the internet? My husband just bought a couple of second hand snowmachines and we would like to take our boys out. (Teenagers). Also, are there any laws that we should know about? Thanks!

    Default A good ride...

    Make your way up to Sheep creek lodge on the Parks hwy. They used to have a pretty good trail system that they groomed up to the mountains behind the lodge. I'm not sure if the trails are still groomed, but they are still there. Check with the lodge about a map. They used to have them just inside the door.

    Good place to eat lunch too.

    Default Riding

    Hatcher Pass is also a great place to ride groomed trails (they groom/open area once they receive 36 inches of snow) and shot off the trails to play in the powder. However, you do need to have your snowmachine registered with the states and they now charge you $5 to park there. Trail maps for the area are available...I got mine from one of the local Park Ranges. Otherwise, I guess the maps are available at the Park office. For condiions call Mat-Su area headquarters at 745-3975.
