Due to the lack of adequate snow cover and ground frost, OHV Travel will continue to be restricted to designated trails within the federally managed Tangle Lakes Archaeological District (TLAD). This restriction is implemented for the protection of cultural resources, per the East Alaska Resource Management Plan dated July 2007. All designated trails within the TLAD are physically marked with green-dotted Carsonite signs. Routes marked with red dots are closed to motorized vehicles. Maps with designated trail markings are located at trailheads and are also available at the Bureau of Land Management Glennallen Field Office. Once adequate cover of either 12 inches of snow or 6 inches of ground frost is present, OHV Travel in the TLAD will be allowed.
Any person who fails to comply with this restriction may be subject to the penalties provided for in Section 8340.0-7 of 43 CFR. Law Enforcement and emergency response personnel are excluded from this restriction when acting in the course of duty.
The TLAD, located between Milepost 17 and 37 from Paxson, Alaska along the Denali Highway, was accepted to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. More than 600 located historic and prehistoric sites within the TLAD help to tell the story of human occupation, mining, and hunting for the past 10,000 years.
