Reminder of transition to winter trail use designations.

November in Anchorage is a transition month when early snows have fallen allowing for ski trail grooming / track setting and the ending of summer multi-use designations of some Anchorage trails. There are year round multi-use and single track trails for all users at most Anchorage parks and users are reminded to be courteous to all users and observe trail use and direction designations for all trail types.
