Roadbiking

Road biking is popular along the Seward Highway National Scenic Byway, which stretches 120 miles from Seward to Anchorage, a large part of which is through the National Forest

Can I use an e-bike on the Forest?

In August 2019, the Department of the Interior reclassified e-bikes as non-motorized vehicles, which has the potential to open a large portion of public lands to e-bike use that were not previously available.

The Forest Service currently manages e-bikes and eMTBs as motorized vehicles and are NOT allowed on Chugach National Forest lands at this time. The Forest Service is managing e-bikes with the goal of allowing recreation opportunities while protecting natural resources and other forest uses. We understand the challenging management situation this can pose in areas of adjoining/shared boundaries.

Currently, Class 1, 2, and 3 e-bikes and electric mountain bicycles (eMTBs) are allowed on approximately 60,000 miles or nearly 40 percent of trails on national forests and grasslands. These vehicles are also allowed on thousands of miles of roads on national forests & grasslands at maintenance level 2,3 or 4.
