A huge thanks to Steve at Alaska Trails for submitting a federal Receational Trails Grant to fund construction of phase 2 of the Mirror Lake Singletrack. This would allow us to build the 2nd half of the originally proposed 4 miles of mountain bike trails at Mirror Lake Park. Wish us luck!
Arctic Cross is coming to Mirror Lake this Saturday Sep 30th! Woohoo!
To clarify, the races will NOT be held on the new Singletrack, but will be held across the highway on the Coyote Ski Trails at Mirror Lake Middle School (off the North Peters Creek exit).
See you there!
Even better, we are happy to announce that we are offering a few scholarships to our Mirror Lake Singletrack volunteers.
Send us a message, we’d love to hook you up!
We’ll be out this week flagging additional trees and tread that need attention.
Lend a hand with the trail repair and join us Sat Sep 23rd 9am-4pm for our fall trail work day!
Let’s celebrate our new mountain bike trails and keep them in shape with a little fall maintenance! Come out for a morning 9am-12pm and/or an afternoon 1-4pm work session. We’ll have a lunch and social hour for everyone from noon-1pm!
We’ve got gravel to haul to a few spots, loose rocks to clear from the big hill, a few sight lines to clear, some roots to trim and a bunch of drains that need to be opened up.
Hope to see you there!

2. Project Title: Mirror Lake Singletrack – Phase 2
3. Project Description Summary:
Alaska Trails and the Chugach Mountain Bike Riders will collaborate to design and build 3 miles of designed use singletrack mountain biking trails. The trails will be located on the Edmonds and Mirror Lake Municipal Park Land in Chugiak. The singletrack trails will be integrated with the current nordic ski trails that are located adjacent to the Glenn Highway. Phase 2 of the project will build on Phase 1, which was made possible by a previous RTP grant.
The Chugach Mountain Bike Riders have been working on this project for more than four years and have received unanimous approval for the project from the Eagle River Parks and Recreation Board of Supervisors and the surrounding community councils. The groups plan to use both professional and volunteer labor for Phase 2 of the project.
