Valley Mountain Bikers and Hikers

Valley Mountain Bikers and Hikers is a recreational trail advocacy group based in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley region of Alaska. We are dedicated to increasing the quality and quantity of sustainable trails for hikers and mountain bikers throughout the Matanuska-Susitna Valley.

The Matanuska-Susitna Valley is one of Alaska’s treasures. The trails here are rich with history and are some of the best in the state. We want to ensure these trails are here for future generations and that hikers and mountain bikers always have the opportunity to enjoy them and the natural beauty that surrounds them.
