Virtual Public Meeting to Discuss Trail Development in the Nenana River Corridor

October 27, 2021
Contact:Paul Ollig, (907) 683-9531

The National Park Service (NPS) invites the public to discuss preliminary ideas under consideration for the possible development of trails and other recreational infrastructure in the area of Denali National Park between the Nenana River and George Parks Highway (Alaska Route 3). This area of the park has been considered for trail development for over twenty years, most recently in 2016. The NPS is currently exploring initial ideas for possible hiking and multiuse trails, campsites, and winter recreation opportunities in the Nenana River corridor. The goal of these potential developments would be to provide easily accessible on-trail recreational opportunities for multiple uses, varying skill levels, and a wide diversity of user groups. Learn more about the Nenana River trails planning.

The virtual meeting will be held Wednesday November 10, 7-8pm Alaska time via the Microsoft Teams platform. The meeting is intended to introduce these exploratory ideas and for the NPS to hear from members of the public regarding their preferences for trails and recreational opportunities in the Nenana River corridor. In addition to attending the meeting, members of the public are invited to provide comments October 27 - November 24 via the Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) page for the project.
