A one-mile access road will also be constructed from the Edgerton Parks Road north to the Government Peak Nordic Ski Trails. A parking lot accommodating buses and private vehicles will be included. The new access road and parking area will be drivable for winter use, but will not be fully completed until June of 2013.
All four Nordic ski trail loops were completed in late August. The trails were seeded this fall and are expected to be skiable this winter once the snow flies and the tracks are set; they should be ready for hiking by June of 2013. Mat-Su Ski Club will work on continued trail route clearing and on-going maintenance.
A more extensive and difficult trail system designed for Olympic level competitors, as well as lighting, will be developed in the future.
