Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Morgan Horse Trail - Open

The Morgan Horse Trail is a non-motorized year round trail, which is located between the Lazy Mountain Recreation Area on the north end and Maud Road on the south. It provides connections to the Lazy Mountain Trail (non-motorized), Matanuska Peak Trail (non-motorized) and the Plumley-Maud Trail (multi-use). It traverses the lower slope of Lazy Mountain and can be muddy in the spring.

The trail travels southeast through the recreation area and follows a section line easement going due south to Maud Road. The area is forested with large cottonwood, white spruce and birch. The trail passes close by homes, so please respect private property.

1/13/2021 The MSB Grooming Crew packed the trail from Lazy Mountain Nordic area to Smith Road with a 6x6 on tracks and the new 4 foot Ginzugroomer. The southern part of the trail needs more snow before grooming.
