Mountain Biking +
Mountain bikers take to the two-tracks and old mining roads in the area for scenic and sometimes heart-pounding rides. One is King River Trail, a multi-use trail reached from Mile 66.3 of the Glenn Highway, just west of the King River Bridge.
Excellent whitewater rafting lies near Sutton on the Matanuska River. Outfitters lead parties of rafters down the river on a variety of trips including the rivers's famous Lion Head, a stretch of Class III-IV whitewater, as well as milder sections.
Good fishing opportunities abound at Moose Creek, Mile 54.6 of the Glenn Highway for rainbow trout and Dolly Varden during the summer and at Seventeen Mile Lake, accessed from Mile 58 of Glenn Highway, for grayling in early spring.
