Areawide Trails Plan
Adopted: April 1997
The Anchorage Trails Plan is the element of the Non-motorized Plan that will most closely reflect an update of the former Areawide Trails Plan (1997). It will primarily concentrate on recreational trails, including greenbelt trails and specialized trails used for activities such as cross-country skiing, horseback riding, dog mushing, skijoring, and snowmobiling, as well as recreational bicycling.
