Albert Loop Trail Reopened
(Anchorage, AK) – The Albert Loop Trail, which is in the vicinity of the Eagle River Nature Center in Chugach State Park, has been re-opened following its annual seasonal closure. The Albert Loop Trail is annually closed during the late summer/fall season until winter freeze up to reduce the potential for human – bear encounters.
Even though the Albert Loop Trail is open again, an encounter with a bear is still possible along the trail. Anyone hiking in Alaska should take appropriate precautionary measures, be prepared to encounter a bear, and be knowledgeable in recognizing bear behavior and how to respond to an encounter.
