Trail Description
About this trail
This is a 6.5 mile long gravel road that takes you from 600 feet above sea level to 2600 feet above sea level. The road can have a bit of traffic on it at times but for the most part it is bike friendly. The road is pretty much snow free and dry in May, it is great to train on before the rest of the trails in Anchorage open.

The climb is steep in a few parts and will take about an hour or so to get up but the ride down is very fast and fun! This road is partially on Fort Richardson so a helmet is a must!

Review: Arctic Valley is a dusty washboard of a dirt road. Stout climb for training. I wouldn't call it a trail. Long hard climb for conditioning. Go to Kincaid for fun.

Review: A washboard dirt road with a lot of traffic. Unless you're looking for a good workout, and a bumpy descent, I wouldn't recommend it.
