    Default Hatcher Pass

    I'm wondering if the Craggie Creek trail is open for ATV's. I thought I saw on here somewhere they were trying to close all the trails at Hatcher Pass. Has anyone heard anything or am I crazy?

    Thanks but that's OK. We went up there today, well not over the pass but up Craigy Creek. No signs up saying no ATV's etc. There were ALOT of people up there camping for the holiday. We went back to the cabin, had lunch and headed back as the weather was getting bad. It was low overcast clouds, rain and getting cold. I went on the DNR site, found a map of the area and it said ATV/ ORV areas so I'd say they were allowed. Link to the map...

    I think the closure is on the other side of the pass.

    We've done Craggy Creek several times, and some of the other trails on the West side. I sure hope they don't close that side down.

    Default all those trail are still open and are in no danger of closing.

    Word of advice for people calling to get information from ohers. First and foremost if you are calling someone who is a granola they will have no idea about atvs worse off they will always tell you something is closed whether it is or not. This girl didnt know her head from her ******** but she tried her darndest to keep you from riding. think about it.

    We went back up to Independence mine on Monday from the Palmer side. I DID see signs saying no atv use allowed. I did NOT see any signs on the Willow side. Ride on!!
