Alaska is live no other!
The Knik River Public Use Area (PUA) is home to a wide variety of different habitat types including glaciers, ice fields, braided river channels and exposed shorelands, high elevation mountains, alpine and sub-alpine tundra, boreal forests, creeks and floodplains, and a sprawling lakes and wetlands complex. Each of these habit types help to influence the areas rich and diverse fish and wildlife populations.
The Knik River Public Use Area (PUA) has an extensive system of trails, most of which are multiple-use. Nearly every trail in the PUA was created over the course of time as a result of unplanned social use. Some trails were created to access hunting and trapping areas, other trails were created for the purpose of recreation, and still others were developed for the purpose of resource extraction. The most well known trail leaves the trailhead and travels 25 miles up towards the Knik Glacier. The trail is more of a route than a designated pathway.
