Willow Alaska Trail System

Willow Trails information, Maps, and Weather Conditions.

The trail system maintained by the Willow Trail Committee goes right by us on Crystal Lake and is part of the Historic Iditarod Trail! For information on trail conditions, snow report, and weather, welcome to the Backcountry Warriors Winter Trails Page. From here you will be able to see an updated image of the weather every 5 minutes, and a time lapse of the day before from each of our cameras. A lot goes on around here with the weather, but there’s much more to see from the weather cam than just the weather! The main snowmachine trail to the Big Susitna River runs right by our lodge and in winter it’s always hopping with dog mushers, snowmachiners, cross country skiers, winter fat tire bikers, and people ice fishing. In the summer we have planes landing, people fishing, swimming, using paddle boats and anything else you can think of that happens on a remote lake. You may see moose hanging out in our yard nearly any time of year. Below are the maps for the amazing trail system in Willow. Enjoy!

Current Snow Conditions

OK, so great news! It snowed all night and is just now letting up. We now have over a foot on the level. We just need it to get cold enough now so that the Willow Trail Committee can get on the lakes and put the markers on the trails. For us snowmachiners that is not a big deal. But for fat tire bikers, cross country skiers, mushers etc. That’s a big deal. Stay tuned and I will continue to update as conditions change.
