Connecting the trails up Lazy Mountain and Matanuska Peak, this trail is easy and relatively flat—perfect for hiking, biking, running, riding horses (in the summer), and skiing and snowshoeing (in winter). It also connects the Lazy Mountain trailhead with the Knik Public Use Area at Maud Road. The trail traverses the lower slope of Lazy Mountain and can be muddy, especially in the spring and after heavy rains. But it makes for a great walk through nice forest, with plenty of deciduous aspen and cottonwood trees intermixed with spruce. (It also passes by private property, so be respectful of this.)

Take note: Dogs must be on leash and under your control. Bears and other wildlife are native to the area and proper precautions should be taken to make your presence known.
