end of Skyline Dr., Eagle River, AK, 99577

Directions from Nearest Address

From Eagle River Loop Road, turn onto Skyline Drive and follow up the mountain to its end at a red gate. Ignore name changes of the street as you progress and continue taking the switchback road uphill to the end. The road splits at the parking area, one continuing uphill to a radio tower several hundred yards away. Take the level road that continues straight on foot several hundred yards until you reach the man-made reservoir at the abandoned farm. You will see a capped standpipe on the West side of the body of water with a spigot that allows it to flow into the bank of the reservoir.

    Hey John,
    Do you go to this spring regularly? Can you post some pictures?

    Great water source. Has two spigots for collecting water. Cold, crisp, clean! It’s 3/4 of a mile walk up the hill from the red gate described in the other post. Great views along the way of Mt. Denali. I was there 8/31/15

    Went there today, no trespassing signs everywhere with cameras and couldn’t find the spring. Very sad

    I tried to find this spring a year ago and it’s on private property with cameras everywhere.
