An environmental assessment proposing to construct new trails connecting the Riley Creek Day Use Area and the Murie Science and Learning Center (MSLC) to other facilities in the entrance area of Denali National Park and Preserve (Denali) is available at for public review and comment. The assessment evaluates an action alternative and a no-action alternative.
The action alternative would enhance connectivity among buildings and trails in the entrance area and would minimize safety concerns for pedestrians using the Denali trail system. The proposed project would include up to 6,500 feet of trail and would consist of a mixture of upgrades to existing informal trails and new trail construction. The Entrance Area Trail Connections Environmental Assessment is available at on the Planning, Environment, and Public Comment Site (PEPC).
Comments can be submitted directly on the PEPC site, e-mailed to to Denali Planning Team, or mailed to Superintendent, Denali National Park and Preserve, P.O. Box 9, Denali Park, AK 99755. Comments will be accepted through May 29, 2017.
