These trails may or may not be groomed and are multi use trails so you may encounter dog mushers, snow machines, fat tire bikes.
Ski hill is a great trail but it is challenging for a beginning skier. Since there’s no signs for Ski Hill, here are instructions: Park at the Overlook coming into Talkeetna (on left). Walk (or ski) uphill on the roadside trail about 100 meters. Look for the trail entrance on your right. Great skate skiing on the hilly 2.5 km trail. No tracks set.
The master plan includes the groomed ski trails of the Talkeetna Lakes Park including Marten, Ermine, Otter and the hiking trail; which is groomed in winter for classic skiing. There are many trails on this plan which do not exist so please be aware of this. This is non-motorized. No dogs allowed on the groomed trails in the woods. Dogs are allowed on the lakes.
