Nancy Lake State Recreation Area ~ Willow, AK: Join the Mat Su Trails and Parks Foundation for winter trails day at Nancy Lake State Recreation Area on February 10th, 2018! Let’s get out and enjoy all that winter has to offer here in the valley. We will be at the winter trailhead, with a warming fire and information on the local trails at Nancy Lake State Recreation Area. Whether you bring your snowmachine, skis or fat bike there is something for everyone.

Never tried out a fat bike, or need to get on a pair of skis? There will be a handful of demos to try out courtesy of Backcountry Bike and Ski of Palmer. They will be on hand to help you get started!
