GLENNALLEN, Alaska— To ensure the protection of cultural resources in the federally managed Tangle Lakes Archaeological District, the BLM Alaska Glennallen Field Office will extend the restrictions for Off-Highway Vehicle travel on designated trails due to inadequate snow cover.
Located between Milepost 17 and 37 from Paxson, Alaska along the Denali Highway, this area was accepted to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. More than 600 located historic and prehistoric sites here help to tell the story of human occupation, mining, and hunting for the past 10,000 years.
All designated trails within the area are physically marked with green-dotted, reflective 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 BLM Glennallen Field Office.
The above restrictions do not apply to law enforcement or emergency response vehicles being used in the course of duty. Authority for closure of public lands is found in 43 CFR 8340 subpart 8341.1(c).
