Middle fork is nice, narrow singletrack with good views of Anchorage on much of the trail. The trail has a few board skinnies as well as some wood steps near the intersection with Powerline Pass.

Access Info

This trail connects to Powerline Pass at the south end and Prospect Heights trailhead at the north end. The trail descends south to north or climbs north to south. From Prospect Heights, go up Wolverine Bowl trail then turn right on Middle Fork when climbing out of the creek valley; from Glen Alps, head "up" Powerline Pass to the south, then take the first available left turn off the trail.


Be careful with your speed heading downhill, as there may be hikers heading up.
