First the bad news, yes some dumbarse local might put a small no parking sticker on one window.
Now the Good news.........5' to 7' of base snow and 22" of fresh snow. The riding is truly awesome. For highly skilled riders, if you go to the back of the valley 12 miles, then turn right up into a side valley that goes toward Caribou Creek, you can go another 1.5 to 2 miles.
Palmer Creek gets shutdown early in the spring, because the trail head is at sea level, and they close the gate, so in an other month you can't get up the road to where there is snow. But for the next two or three weeks it will be awesome riding.
The parking lot at the trail head is small, but Discovery Drive on the left as you go up Palmer Creek Road, is near the trail head, and is Kenai Peninsula property, with No private property on that road, as it is a Kenai Borough pending sale of new two acre lots. All that land is borough property, and should offer spill over parking.
Ride safe, see ya in the back of the valley. Note: The Discovery Café is closed for the winter.
