Mystery Creek Access Road has been reopened for the season by the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, a Tuesday news release from the refuge says.
According to previous Clarion reporting, the road is often used for hunting access, and is usually closed in the fall as weather causes road conditions to deteriorate.
The release notes that the location of the road’s intersection with the Sterling Highway has moved, now around a half mile east of the previous entrance. The road is located at Milepost 63, close to the Skyline Trailhead.
“The Refuge reminds users that the road and pipeline corridor may be closed at any time to prevent surface damage should weather and road conditions dictate,” the release reads.
Those conditions require the use of four-wheel drive vehicles, the release says, and travelers may encounter mud and standing water. Travel on the road is “at the user’s own risk.”
