|Talkeetna is full of trail-loving, community-minded people, several of whom spontaneously volunteered to do finish work on the trail even as it was being cut in with the Sweco.|
Alaska Trails, IMBA, and National Park Service Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance program helped Chris Mannix and the Denali Nordic Ski Club design a beautiful trail through the forests and Lakes just a short bike ride from downtown Talkeetna. This 3.5 mile loop was rough-cut by Happy Trails 2007. In 2008 a Youth Conservation Corps crew finished the trail with help from community volunteers.
Talkeetna Lakes Trail is a non-motorized multiple use trail that surfs the edge of X and Y Lakes and wiggles through the surrounding hills.
