Fishhook Parking Area and Trailhead

(Hatcher Pass, Mat-Su Area)

Fishhook Trailhead Parking lot

Area Description:

Fishhook Trailhead is located in the Hatcher Pass East Management Area.

Located at the base of Marmot Mountain, this area gets year-round use.  During summer months, paragliders often launch from Marmot Mountain and land in the parking lot.  Blueberry picking in mid-summer is popular.   In the winter, the parking lot becomes a destination for both sledders, skiers and snowmobilers.   The Hatcher Pass Snowmobile Corridor Trail passes by the trailhead making this an ideal location to start a snowmobile ride over Hatcher Pass to the west side of the mountains.
