to know any insight on this trail. THis trail is about 40 miles one way. I was told this is by far one of the most scenic trail system in the mat-su valley. There are numerous swinging rope bridges across valleys that you can walk across and alot of sheep and goats in the back mountain valleys. It all sounds great but here is the problem.
Where is the official trail head? You see it hugs the left side of the chickaloon river before you get to the boulder creek trail. I have always wanted to ride this trail but from what i have been told if you park your vehicle along the one road which turns off and unload your vehicle you will have problems. What problems? Well supposedly some ******* bought land next to this trail and is a granola and wants no traffic, no bike, atvs etc. You leave your vehicle and when you come back from a good days ride you will find your vehicle with broken windows and slashed tires. My understanding is the matsu trail committee is trying to build some sort of easement to this trail and really open this up for us trail riders.
So what insight can anyone give me on this. Is it worth the trip, was the trail all it was cracked up to be, and did you have any problems with this local guy. My only thought is to take a party up there, unload the vehicles and have a couple people take their machines up to boulder creek and ride while the rest of us ride this trail. My thinking is this way we are in a group, and the vehicles are safetly down the road so nothing could happen.
What is everyones thoughts on this................................
