Dirt road/ski trail leading from CMT to College Connector and back entrance to Mooseberry Mesa.

Dot Helm

Overview

Possibility of closure for construction, but more likely on the College Connector Trail, which is closer to construction now. Consider trail conditions during breakup and wet weather.
Features: Birding [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Leashed

Description [Suggest Changes]

This is probably the gentlest of the rolling hills routes in Crevasse-Moraine. Once you hit the College Connector, it's relatively flat to the Matanuska Experiment Farm trails.

This trail/dirt road is used by the Landfill people in trucks to monitor their wells, but you probably wouldn't see them often. Some construction may occur along the area where this road connects with College Connector.

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Bald eagles can be seen in old cottonwood trees near the Landfill. Ravens and seagulls are also present.
