Alaska Trails Mobile Tool Trailers

Replacement of trailers and equipment for volunteer use

Cool - new tools!

Since 2007, Alaska Trails has fielded two mobile tool trailers that are rented by trail constructors or donated for use by non-profits and volunteer trail builders. The trailers, one in Fairbanks and one in Anchorage, have supported trail building by local, state and federal agencies, service groups and Girl and Boy Scouts. Both trailers are equipped with over 50 different hand tools and safety equipment. Alaska Trails was awarded a Recreational Trails Program grant in 2013 to replace the popular tool trailers and purchase new tools and equipment to outfit them.

The trailers have been used by many youth trail builders including the Student Conservation Association, the Anchorage Youth Employment in Parks, and the Chugach Children's Forest - a partnership led by Alaska Geographic and the U.S. Forest Service that provides life-changing expeditions and educational experiences for young Alaskans of all backgrounds.
