Lower Nordic Loop Improvements

The Lower Nordic Loop has several stream crossings that tend to erode the snow during the season. A grant from the Alaska Trails Initiative was received to culvert the stream crossings and remove some of the sharp corners on the lower loop.

As of May 6 we are waiting on a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers. Once we have this permit, work will begin on installation of new culverts. Until then we have been given the ok to work on existing culverts.

To help with the installation of the culverts as well as hauling rock and doing other trail work, we have purchased a Morooka, an all terrain vehicle. The Morooka arrived on June 24.

July 16 - work has begun replacing culverts on the lower loop

August 6 - work on replacing culverts is completed
