16 Mile DH Trail Details
16 Mile Summer Trail was initially a rugged singletrack DH trail maintained by local builders since 2008, the State of Alaska installed a more user friendly course in 2012. The new state course removed any of the wooden features that were present on the original 16 mile trail and replaced the skinny singletrack with a machine cut ~4' wide track down the mountain. This new trail flows well and has multiple banked berms and small jumps that wind down the mountainside.
This is a shuttle access downhill trail that is suitable for all ages and multiple different bike styles- although best suited for all mountain, dirtjumper or full on DH bikes. Parking at the bottom is near mile 12 of Palmer Fishhook Road, while the top of the trailhead starts near mile 16 of Palmer Fishhook Road.
The berms are starting to degrade and some areas of trail will need users to step up and control erosion and general maintenance of the trail.
