  • To get to the trailhead park at the Girdwood Forest Fair Park and follow the dirt road in the back. This will lead you to the Lower Iditarod trailhead.

BIKing this TRAIL

This is a great introductory trail for mountain biking with only about 100 feet of elevation change. Depending on the year you’ll run into some muddy spots but it’s a great spot to gain confidence with it.

You can ride this trail there and back or pick a different trail for the way back – via the Girdwood Bike Path or if you’re an experienced rider take the Beaver Pond Trail.
