  2. Archangel Road

      [Mat-Su] - 2:00 PM, Fri Oct 17, 2014 by Ed Strabel

    Reference the gate at the start of AAR. I believe it was locked so that DOT would go back there with heavy equipment and spread the 2 concrete barriers apart so that the Mat-Su Ski Club groomer would be able to fit thru the gap. And also so skiers coming fast, down the hill across the bridge would not have to "thread the needle". I have not been able to confirm with DOT that the barriers have been moved. If anyone knows what the situation is like at the bridge please call me at 745-4190. Thanks

    The road is still driveable to the bridge, but is now locked at the Hatcher Pass road. They just close it arbitrarily early now - denying easier access to Snowbird and Lane

    Very unfortunate Archangel is locked. We used to ski back there well into mid-November some years. DOT protecting us from ourselves - or protecting the least common denominator. Very sad

    I believe the road is closed because the bridge was determined to no longer be structurally sound to drive across. Here is the article from the Frontiersman: http://www.frontiersman.com/community_briefs/archangel-creek-bridge-closed-to-vehicle-traffic/article_d686f418-0334-11e4-a8d1-001a4bcf887a.html

    Hatcher not enough to really ski
    unfortunately the Archangel gate is locked, so add a 2.5 mile hike each way if you want to ski Snowbird
  7. Kincaid Park

    I guess I should have put todays date on my last post so it would have gone to the top. Please reference the sunday report for a lost item. Thanks,

    Black bear sighting near Middle Earth trail Sunday night. The bear was between Middle Earth and Mize Loop, just before the top intersection with Northwest Passage.

    Lost: I rode the STA bike trails last Sunday and my Lezyne frame pump came off my bike somewhere. Was on the full length Middle Earth plus all of its side trails and came back the south part of Bowling alley to Jodhpur parking lot. If any one picked it up and feels like doing a good deed, call me at 344-3344.

    Thanks, Eric

    4 inches of heavy wet snow at Independence Mine. 25 degrees, no grooming yet, but we will be bringing up grooming equipment on Monday.

    I saw the 2 black bear cubs on Jodhpur Loop on Friday, but I didn't see the sow. They were at the intersection of Jodhpur Loop and the connector closest to the Jodhpur lot.
  12. Spencer loop

      [Anchorage] - 9:00 AM, Mon Sep 08, 2014 by Dave Bass

    It looks like the spencer loop is being widened to Kincaid dimensions. There's no trail closed signage on the south rim of the middle fork gorge below Prospect Heights so we ran down down into Wall Street unaware of the carnage. Foot penetration was up to 4" in the new mud surface.
    Progress marches on...
  13. BLM Campbell Tract

      [Anchorage] - 7:00 AM, Mon Sep 08, 2014 by Bear Aware

    Why would bears NOT be "still roaming" everywhere in Anchorage's green space? They don't den up for at least a couple of months. There's still salmon in Campbell Creek and lots of berries everywhere. None of us should expect land managers to have to tell us that we're sharing space with bears.

    BTW, MRab @ Kincaid on 7/31, when a bear stands up it isn't being aggressive, it is just trying to get a better idea of who/what you are.

    Black bear sow an cub sighting near the heli landing pads. They were far enough away that they continued on their way without any interactions. No signage at trailheads that the bears are still roaming around the tract. Be on alert!

    This is a beautiful trail through hemlock forest to alpine tundra starting from behind the Alyeska resort. The trail is in great condition and there are lots of berries further in.
  16. Campbell Creek Trail

      [Anchorage] - 8:00 PM, Sun Aug 10, 2014 by John McCormick

    Black bear sighting: the bear was immediately off the paved pedestrian/bike trail that runs along the northbound-only extension of Spenard Road between Spenard and the Westchester Lagoon basin, The bear was apparently awaiting an opportunity to cross the road to get at the raspberries that have fallen from the bushes above the large painted retaining wall. This trail is now a part of the detour around the construction on the Chester Creek Trail.

    Two bear cubs playing on the right side of Mize Loop, off the trail in a disc golf area, just before the cut-off between the Puffin Climb and Chelles turn. About 5pm. Never saw the mom.

    Sow and two cubs on the cut through between Jodphur and the bike trail. The sow was not pleased to see me - she got up on her hind legs. Be alert and careful out there!
  19. Rabbit Creek Valley

      [Anchorage] - 9:00 PM, Mon Jul 28, 2014 by Nancy Pease

    If you are heading to Peak 2 or 3 or Rabbit Lake: the trailhead on Upper Canyon Road is closed for parking until August 9 (long overdue road and parking improvements are underway). There is no legal parking along the road for at least 3/4 mile below the trailhead, either. I hope the State Park folks will learn from the DOTPF how to post notices on-site well before any construction, as I'm sure there will be dozens of unsuspecting hikers and bikers who will drive up there in vain. At least the parking situation will improve!
