Features Wildlife

Family Friendly The manageable distance and grades of this trail combined with the promise of sled dogs at the end make for a family treat.

Description

The Roadside Trail is mostly a flat dirt trail leading from the parking lot of the visitor center to the dog kennels. The road is in sight most of the time, so those looking for more solitude should take the Rock Creek Trail. This trail is a great way to get to the kennels. There are lots of wild blueberries along the trail in July and August so watch out for black bears.
