This popular trail is usually packed with walkers, strollers, and the family dog—all easily accommodated. The trail is wheelchair accessible and begins on a wide, slightly downhill path to two platforms with views of beaver activity, spawning salmon, and Eagle River Valley. There are interpretive signboards, abundant wildflowers, lush vegetation, and great scenery throughout the hike.
The Rodak Nature Trail is as popular with local residents as it is with tourists. It provides an easy, quick hike for the entire family on a nice weekend or an evening when you want to take a leisurely walk and just enjoy nature. Prior to walking the trail, take a few moments to go into the nature center. The center and staff can provide a wealth of information about the area—historical, natural history, Alaska’s flora and fauna, things to see, and recent sightings along the trail.
