FAIRBANKS -- The National Park Service is taking comments on its plans to improve and lengthen a trail at Denali National Park.
The agency proposed to improve the 1.5 mile Horseshoe Trail, which starts near the park entrance and leads to Horseshoe Lake, an oxbow lake formed from a former bend of the Nenana River.
The agency said sections of the trail are in poor condition and others are eroding.
The park service also is proposing to build a new loop to the Nenana River and around the lake.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported the agency will collect public comments on the project through March 19.
