About the event

Alaska Trails is holding a Golden Shovel celebration for the Eklutna Lakeside Trail Improvements project, on August 29th from 10AM to 11AM.  Attendees include state legislators, Governor's administration, state parks staff, foundations supporting trails, local governments, and the public.

The Eklutna Lakeside Trail Improvements will realign and rebuild sections of this popular motorized and multi-use trail where it has collapsed into Eklutna Lake. Due to lakeshore erosion, this trail has become a public safety hazard, especially for families with young children. This project will reduce the backlog of maintenance on DNR lands. This project is also a part of the Alaska Long Trail system of trails.
