Opening of the Albert Loop Trail
(Anchorage, AK) – The Albert Loop Trail, which is in the vicinity of the Eagle River Nature Center, has been re-opened following its annual seasonal closure. To reduce the potential for human – bear encounters, the Albert Loop trail is closed annually during the late summer-early fall season until winter freeze up.The lifting of this closure does not signal the end to a possible encounter with a bear. Whenever on an Alaskan trail, individuals must always be prepared to chance upon a bear, and be knowledgeable in recognizing their behavior and know how to respond to an encounter.
