GLENNALLEN, Alaska — Snow cover and ground frost conditions are now considered adequate for Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) travel on designated trails in the Tangle Lakes Archaeological District and BLM staff have determined travel restrictions are no longer necessary.
Located between Milepost 17 and 37 along the Denali Highway, the Tangle Lakes Archaeological District (TLAD) has more than 600 historic and prehistoric sites that help to tell the story of human occupation, mining, and hunting for the past 10,000 years. Between May 16 and October 15, off-highway vehicles are limited to designated trails with in the TLAD district for the protection of cultural resources. These travel restrictions were extended last month to protect these cultural resources during inadequate snow cover conditions.
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.
Alerts on travel conditions can also be found on the BLM website at www.blm.gov/office/glennallen-field-office.
