Ridge Trail

Trail Plan:

The Talkeetna Community Council, Inc. (TCCI) and its subcommittee Talkeetna Park Advisory Committee (TPAC) have developed a Ridge Trail – Trail Development Plan (RT – TDP) .

The RT-TDP planning area consists of approximately 600 acres, located 2-3 miles north and east of Talkeetna.  

The RT-TDP project involves the upgrade of the existing Ridge Trail, reclassifying the MSB lands to Public Recreation, recommending secondary trails/loops that would better meet the needs of specific user groups that are currently not well served, as well as recommending trailheads, informational kiosks, and signage.

The project is funded by the MatSu Borough, the Mat-Su Trails and Parks Foundation and a lot of dedicated volunteers. 

The project is assigned to Agnew::Beck

The Ridge Trail - Trail Development Plan


Reclassification:

OR 17-111 reclassifies the borough owned land over which the Ridge Trail exist to "public recreation".

This excludes the existing Beaver gravel pit, which will keep the land classification: "public recreation recourse management reserve use". 


Implementation:

The Borough has reallocated $313,500 for the Ridge Trail project from the 2016 Recreational Bond 

Phase A implementation - multi use trail development is rewarded to:
Happy Trails, Inc
Ground work for the project starts in the spring of 2020.


Phase B - non-motorized trail upgrade:

Currently the subcommittee and borough are working on the RFP.

Ground work for this project starts in the fall 2020 or spring of 2021
