Temporary closures announced for Chena River State Recreation Area trails
(Fairbanks, AK) – Starting on Sunday, April 28, the Compeau, Stiles Creek, and Angel Creek Hillside trails in Chena River State Recreation Area will be closed to all trail uses – except hiking – until the end of May.
To protect the public’s investment in maintaining these popular trails and to ensure their availability for summer motorized use, the trails must be given time to thaw and dry out. The trails are expected to re-open on Friday, May 31.
Trail users are urged to help State Parks in protecting these multiple-use trails. If you see someone violating a trail closure, you may report it to the State Parks office at 451-2695 during business hours. During evenings and weekends, call the State Troopers at 451-5100 and they will notify park rangers.
