Fire Break Trail

Can you see the Alaska Range on the horizon?

One of my favorite trails in Two Rivers is called the Fire Break Trail. Most of the Two Rivers trails weave through the lowlands, swamps, or down the Chena River, but the Fire Break is entirely hills. Going straight up and straight down, the trail climbs the ridges bordering the Chena Valley where we can get a glimpse out across both the Chena Valley and the Tanana Flats. On clear days, like today, we can see the Alaska Range 100 miles away!
