Trail Maps

DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE MORE THAN 2,000 MILES OF TRAILS IN THE MAT-SU VALLEY?

Hike, bike, ski, snowshoe or ATV and snowmobile on this vast recreational system!

Below is a list of some of the more popular trail systems groups by geographic location. Refer to the map below for the general location. You can also download a trail map and description by clicking on the trail name.

In late 2016, the Mat-Su Borough produced updated color versions of 15 trail maps. Below, they are noted as "updated." You can download and print these maps before heading out in the Mat-Su Valley on your next hiking adventure.

Another great resource for local trails is a Mat-Su blog called Thrive Outside. They have hiked almost every trail included on the blog, and have provided many excellent links to maps, conditions, directions and more.
