The Chugach Mountain Bike Riders (CMBR) trails at Mirror Lake are now open.

The trails officially opened for summertime traffic May 16. Located between Mirror and Edmonds lakes, the five-mile trail system first opened in 2017, with a second phase completed last year. The main access point is at the northeast end of the Mirror Lake Park parking lot.

The CMBR has been hosting volunteer work parties to help get the trails into summertime shape. The next event is scheduled for May 30 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The group will hold its Midsummer Masher mountain bike race Sunday, June 30, at 1 p.m. with a noon check-in time.
