Trail Rules & Etiquette

Trails Schedule

The trails are open during the daylight hours. Available for cross-country skiing in the winter and jogging, walking or hiking in the summer.

Pets, bicycles, and motorized vehicles are not allowed on these trails.

The Nikiski Community Trails are located adjacent to the Nikiski High School.

Poolside Trails

The trails are usually free from ice and snow about the first week of June. Fitness stations are located along the first loop of the Poolside Trail for those who are serious about getting into and staying in shape.

Nature enthusiasts can find plenty to look at along the trail. If solitude is what you seek, the trail leads to a picnic shelter located on the banks of a beautiful lake.

The Poolside Trails feature an 18-hole Disc Golf Course. The Par 63 Fairways are challenging for those seeking the competitive edge, but yet ejoyable for the entire family.

Maps and Disc Golf Score Cards are located at each trailhead (adjacent to Nikiski Pool and at the north end of the parking lot of the NCRC).
