Tsalteshi Trails Association (TTA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting healthy, trail-oriented individual and family activities, including skiing, snowshoeing, biking, running and walking.
The trails are located just south of Soldotna with two managed areas. The original trails have two trailheads — behind Skyview High School and across from the Soldotna Regional Sports Center on Kalifornsky Beach Road. There are over 25 kilometers (15 miles) of trails groomed for cross-country skiing in the winter, interwoven with 10 kilometers of single-track winter bike trails. During non-ski months, all trails are open for hikers, runners, mountain bikers and dogs. Over 8 miles of trails, departing from the Skyview High School trailhead, have lights.
TTA’s second and newer managed location is our Slikok Multi-Use Trails area. Slikok features 5 kilometers of maintained trails open year-round to walking, snowshoeing, running, biking, skiing and dogs and another 5 kilometers of single-track bike trails. There is a parking area across the Sterling Highway from the Central Peninsula Landfill. These multi-use trails may also be accessed from Isaak Road and from Skyview, via the Owl Trail and, in the winter, a groomed bike- and walker-friendly connector trail starting behind the disc golf sign.
Voluntary membership and donations, and city, state and federal grant funds, have allowed TTA to improve and expand to meet increasing community need. There are no user fees. Our volunteer workforce has also grown to support our growing trail system and expanding school, after-school and community programs.
