Summer Trails and Parks Guide


The Mat-Su Trails and Parks Foundation Summer Trails and Parks Guide!

The days are long, but summer is short, and we hope you’re getting out to explore all of the awesome summer recreation opportunities in the Valley! From summit views, to wildlife viewing, mountain biking, fishing, backcountry huts, playgrounds, ball fields, the Mat-Su really has it all in the summer!

We’re here to help you find your next outdoor adventure!

We compiled some of our favorite summer trails and parks around Palmer to share with you!
