Did this neat trip saturday riding trails, section lines, powerlines, ditches and so on from my house near hatcher pass across the valley to the knik river bridge, then up the riverside trail to jim creek, then up to the glacier, across metal creek, up metal creek trail, and then back home via a different route than I came for the most part. Ive been to Knik a jillion times like lots of people, but this trip meant more to me due to the fact that it was trails all the way from house to house, like 95 or 100 miles in about 7.5 hours. You really get a sense of how big the valley is, and how fortunate you are to live in a place where this is possible. A long day in 30 degree weather with loads of deep water crossings and puddle splash. Was wearing goretex waders so I stayed warm the whole day. The video should be viewable 2 hours after this is posted. Hope you all enjoy it. This is the quintessential winter riding spot in southcentral ak, it stays snowfree most of the winter due to rainshadow effect and other reasons. Just an inch of ice showing on the glacier toe lake.
