Flooding closes Eklutna Lakeside Trail to ATVs
(Anchorage, AK) – The Eklutna Lakeside Trail located to the north of Eklutna Lake in Chugach State Park, has been closed to all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) due to substantial flooding.
Exceptionally high water has flooded sections of the main trail and lower loop sections, resulting in significant erosion damage.
Currently, rising water approaches up to two feet deep in portions of the first third-of-mile of the trail and it exceeds three feet at approximately Mile 8 of the main trail.
The trail remains open to pedestrian/bike traffic but park users must be prepared to contend with very flooded conditions.
