Kincaid Beach Trail- YEP 2017

YEP works with wooden posts

MOA funds: $24,200
Alaska State Legislative Grant: $16,500


Youth Employment in Parks began this project two years ago to create a sustainable trail down to the Kincaid Beach. This year the YEP teens did additional trail maintenance and added some finishing touches. The crews laid more gravel on the upper landing creating a more sustainable, level walkway. They also added a wood fence to block unsustainable social trails, and more posts and rope to help direct traffic down the bluff.

The project consisted of:
• Hauling 14 tons of D1 gravel
• Installing 9 posts and decking to create a fence and natural trail corridor
• Installing 90 feet of rope

Project Dates:
July 3 – 6
