This trail was originally designed as a ski trail, but generally is not groomed anymore even after any snow.

However, the path is wide enough with enough hills to make a great workout trail for riders and runners alike. Similar to most of the forested Matanuska Greenbelt area, the views are minimal. Most people will do their more casual rides, hikes, and runs on the singletrack trails, but this connector is a fast way to get from one place to another.

You can pick this trail up at the south end off the Long Lake Loop (Matanuska Lake or Long Lake Trailheads) or the north end from the Expressway in Crevasse-Moraine Trails.

At the moment (July 1, 2016) this map is not showing the Bear Trails (near south end) or the Fox Trails (near Middle Picnic Table). (See matanuska-greenbelt.org/tra..., including the interactive maps, for updates).
