Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Plans > Herning Concept Plan

The Matanuska-Susitna Borough (Mat-Su or
MSB) is the fastest-growing area in Alaska.
Today, the Herning Trail crosses primarily private
lands that are quickly becoming subdivided and
developed, creating challenges for protecting
access to and along the RS2477 right of way.
The Herning Trail and other historic routes
across the borough can serve as connectors of
a trail network that provides a range of benefits
to local residents and visitors. For this to
happen, local communities, land owners, nonprofits,
and government agencies must work
together to protect and enhance public access
in a way that works for everyone. The Herning
Trail project is intended to serve as a model for
future projects.
