Deep Creek / Anchor River Off Road Vehicle Trails Plan
The Deep Creek /Anchor
River Off-Road-Vehicle Trails Assessment was a collaborative effort between
the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Division of Parks and Outdoor
Recreation (ADNR, DPOR), and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G).
These agencies worked together to solicit public comments concerning Off-Road-Vehicle
(ORV) use on the lower Kenai Peninsula, evaluate river and wetland crossings,
and develop prescriptive actions for making ORV trails on the lower Kenai
The goal of the Deep Creek/Anchor River Off-Road-Vehicle Trails Assessment is to preserve traditional access to state resources while reducing wetland and stream crossing impacts from ORV use, and to ensure that trails on the lower Kenai Peninsula are legal and do not trespass on private land.
After engaging in a collaborative public process with stakeholders, and evaluating and surveying the project area, ADF&G developed seven prescriptive actions located on three trails on the lower Kenai Peninsula for site-specific trail and stream crossing improvements. The detailed prescriptive actions give stakeholders the necessary tools to evaluate the scope of the project, develop a plan of action, and solicit funding from public and private groups to implement their plan. The result will be a sustainable ORV trail system on the lower Kenai Peninsula that avoids wetland and riparian habitats, minimizes stream crossings, respects private property, and allows for year-round public access.
