Beach Lake Trail – Alternative I (revised)

Representatives from the Chugiak-Eagle River Parks and Rec Board of Supervisors, Chugach Mountain Bike Riders, and the Chugiak Dog Mushers Association stomped around the woods together on Sunday, Nov 20th, in an effort to better understand the needs, wants, and concerns of each user group.

Alternative I (revised), a “Single Bridge” on the portage trail between Beach Lake and the inlet was proposed. This alternative will solve the existing conflict between off-leash dogs and mushers on the Portage Trail (between Beach Lake and the Inlet,) and there will be no loss of mushing trail mileage. It will provide a direct ADA-accessible route to the inlet.

Each group will bring this back to their boards for discussion and further modifications may be made. We are hopeful that this alternative is one that can work for all the interested stakeholders.

Other alternatives may still be considered. Please email for more information.
