Sad to see a great winter retreat closing for the season... ...
This just in.....
THE TRAPPER CREEK INN
Tom, Connie and Elise Dooley announced TCI will not be open from October 1st to March 8th this winter and all services including the gas station will not be available.
This comes with much regret because they have SPOILED us for so many seasons with fuel, hospitality and a warm meal or snack in an otherwise occasionally-open stretch of business along the Parks. TCI served as a rally point for MANY Anchorage Snowmobile Club day-rides but the parking lot will not be plowed or available this winter. And the loss of a community center with information for many a lost soul will be a great hardship not to mention shelter with a tasty home-cooked meal and snacks any 'beeler would crave at the end of a long riding day.
But at the same token, we understand this decision as winters as of late have seen hesitant business as pocketbooks get smaller and the snow turns into rain more often than it ever did. Seems like a good time to take a break if you're ever going to do it !
YOU WILL BE MISSED TRAPPER CREEK INN but we'll certainly look forward to your return March 8th with some of the best of the riding season still left !

Gave testimony last night to the Planning Commission in favor of the Herning Trail Master Plan. The Herning Trail is a historically significant trail to the communities of Knik, Big Lake, Houston, Willow and further north. Once completed, this portion of the trail will connect Knik, Big Lake and Houston once again and will help to inform users of our rich history and pioneer spirit. The Planning Commision unanimously passed this on to the Assembly.
