Hike This New Trail In Alaska For A Wilderness Adventure
There are hundreds of trails in the hills around Fairbanks, through the beautiful birch forests and along the winding rivers. The new trail that will be completed this year will be one of the best in the area. At 38 miles down the scenic Chena Hot Springs Road near Fairbanks, the Chena State Recreation Area is a wonderful place to spend the day or the weekend exploring the vibrant boreal forest, the rolling hills and the envigorating Chena River. Named the Mastadon Trail, this new path will lead to the Nugget Creek Cabin and be completed by this winter. The cabin is primarily used in the colder months for cross-country ski or snowshoe adventures on the frozen river. Keep your eyes out for the proposed completion date in September and try out this new trail in Alaska for a fresh wilderness adventure.
