Any hospitality in Wasilla/Palmer?

My wife and I, oh the dog too are moving south in a couple weeks. We're looking for a safe place to park our truck and trailer for a few hours while we unload the bikes and ride up hatcher pass.

Dean, the gate is closed on the Palmer side but you can ride 90% of the pass by going up the Willow side and back. Twice the fun anyway.

Guess we won't be needing a place to park after all.

Like Mark907 said, you are welcome to park here in Willow and ride up and back from this side. It's still a great run and awesome scenery on a sunny day.

Im told they were plowing the palmer side recently but they wont open it for motorized travel until early july usually due to the fact that the road surface stays real soft for a long time and the new ranger is a big fan of gates and restricting access and writing tickets.

So if hatchers is out what's a good ride in the ANC area. My wife is a very green rider and is on a grom. Worst case she can ride double with me.

Hope, is a nice ride. Good grub at the Discovery Cafe when you get there as we'll. No gravel, but a nice curvy road. Probably too early for Palmer Creek Road to be open, but if it is, it's a beautiful side trip while in Hope.
