I find low-angled trails that would still take me into the mountains. Here are some relatively easy trails for summer and fall hiking.
Without such an outstanding community of people here in Chugiak and Eagle River, not a single one of these charities would float.
The trailhead at the Eagle River Nature Center opens the pathway to spring. As you set out down the trail, the sweet scent of fresh green pines baking in the sun is strong. It’s a unique alpine announcement that spring is in the air.
If you haven’t done it already, it’s time to stretch the legs and get in some easy summer hikes to limber up and prepare for some of the harder ones.
The girls were making a quinzhee (pronounced kwinzee), which is a shelter made entirely out of snow at the Eagle River Nature Center.
