Rodak Nature Trail: Great condition.
Albert Loop: Great condition except there is a FLOODED section on lower Albert Loop at the winter snow machine access to the river. USE THE BYPASS trail to avoid this flooded section of the Albert Loop.
The Albert Loop Trail is closed annually when the salmon reach the creeks that cross this trail - typically by late July/early August. No
sightings as of August 4th. We'll keep you posted.
Historic Iditarod Trail/Crow Pass Trail (Nature Center Trailhead to Echo Bend only ): Great condition.
Dew Mound Trail: Good condition.
Dog owners: Please remember to keep your dog(s) on a leash on the Rodak Trail, Albert Loop Trail and first mile of the Dew Mound and Iditarod Trail. Please be responsible trail users and pickup after your dogs. Bags are available at the trail head sign at the ERNC.
Crow Pass Trail: 7/29/2020: Trail overgrown in many areas once you descend down from Raven Glacier. Eagle River was thigh-high to low waist on someone 5'6"on 7/31/20. Once you get to the other side of the river crossing (coming from Girdwood to Eagle River), follow the river downstream from the kiosk for a bit to pick up the trail again. Do not head straight into the woods right at the crossing, this is just a social trail to a camping spot. The trail on the Eagle River side is flooded on some spots near Twin Falls, and the bridge at Thunder Gorge is gone. The rope is still there though. Moving towards Twin Falls, some small flooding spots along with the usual high-brush we get in July. The water in Eagle River and pretty much all creeks like Icicle, Thunder, and Twin Falls is pretty high. After Icicle Creek, the trail is nice and dry
Please note: These are reports from trail users. We cannot and do not guarantee trail conditions on any given day/time. Trail conditions change
daily, especially the river depth at the ford site. Be prepared for anything from knee to waist deep. If you are not comfortable crossing,
turn around and go back the way you came. You should be prepared for any kind of weather (rain, snow, sun, fog) and wildlife (bears/moose).
Always carry a map for navigation, the trail is not marked. Trail condition contacts: Eagle River Nature Center 907-694-2108,
