This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

We invite you to join us for some trail work at the trails at Skyline Ridge Park. Work will consist of installing new trail wayfinding signs, clearing brush, and refinishing and resurfacing sections of trail. This will be a fun short work day, 10am-2pm, with snacks and some SWAG sponsored by REI. This project is supported by the Fairbanks North Star Borough Parks and Recreation Department, REI Fairbanks, the Interior Alaska Trails and Parks Foundation, and Alaska Trails. Alaska Trails will provide extra tools and safety gear. Signs and materials are donated by the Interior Alaska Trails and Parks Foundation, courtesy of an REI "Loving our Local Outdoors" grant. Fairbanks North Star Borough will provide staff and equipment. So come out and celebrate National Public Lands Day and feel good lending a hand to keep your local trails in tip-top shape! You will make a noticeable and permanent improvement to the trails and pick up some trail work skills along the way. Come dressed and prepared for working outdoors in the elements. Sturdy closed-toe shoes, long pants, gloves, and eye protection are required. Skyline Ridge Park is located at the corner of Noel Drive and MIA Drive.
