    Similar to Farmers loop road, the combined application of coarse aggregate and OHV use adjacent to the bike path renders the path unusable at times and I opt for using the road instead.

    This path is unnavigable between McGrath and Steese much of the summer due to the gravel covering the path from OHVs. I often opt for the road in this section. Much of the Farmers loop path has similar issues, although not as severe as here

    There is too little sight distance for peds/cars turning right onto Farmers Loop. The right-turning cars also are not required to stop.

    Abrupt turn on narrow sidewalk where the right turn lane begins is difficult to navigate on bikes

    The bike/pedestrian trail here is terrific because it's physically separate from Sheep Creek by at least 20 feet. This separation absolutely is safest design for a path. Please encourage Trooper enforcement of the ban on motorized traffic as motorized use is dangerous to the walkers/bikers.

    For user health and safety, Yankovich sorely needs a bike path that has physical separation from traffic. A widened shoulder with paint striping is an unsafe bandage.

    FNSB please encourage Trooper enforcement when 4-wheelers and dirt bikes are on the bike path. These create dangerous conditions for non-motorized users, and cause erosion. There is no legal status for motorized, unlicensed ATVs.

    There needs to be a stop sign instead of a yield sign from the offramp onto Peger Road from the Johansen Expy because I don't think people look at the sidewalks on either side before they turn there and a stop sign might make it safer for bicycles and pedestrians in that area.

    Biking and food traffic has increased on this section (likely due to new business). Extension of bike path or widen shoulders would be helpful.

    A separate trail for ATV traffic from the multi-use path would keep gravel off the path which is dangerous for bicycles.

    Fox should be connected to Fairbanks so there is a way to get from that community to Fairbanks without having to use the shoulders of the high speed roadway, similar to how Ester is connected to Fairbanks.

    Maintain path in winter. Now with the narrowed shoulders it is even harder (if not impossible) to use the shoulders to walk to bus stops and other locations in winter.

    Woll Road needs pedestrian accommodations at least from Bradway to Marigold. A separated path would be ideal due to the number of families with children and dogs that use Woll Road to access the school's playground.

    Badger Bike Path should be connected to Fairbanks along the Richardson Highway so there is an alternate route besides going on FtWW which isnt open to all users.

    I live on scenic loop and would love to have access to ski on the pearl creek trails and to connect the pearl creek trails with the dog mushing trails and skarland!

    I live on Scenic Loop and would love to have a formal non-motorized easement to access the skarland trails, pearl creek, and the friends and family in the upper neighborhoods. Now there is no official easement. Also, think it would be great for people in the upper neighborhoods to quickly access the bike trail.

    Gravel on bike path at driveways prevents use of narrow tire bicycles on path. Recommend smoothing out ramps with asphalt paving.

    A safe bicycle connection from Chena Ridge, Chena Pump, and Dartmouth Drive to this multi-use path is sorely needed. The intersections between there and the bike path here are very dangerous for cyclicsts.

    There is just no good way for bikes to get through this intersection. The sidewalks are in very poor shape and there are no shoulders for cyclists to get out of the way of traffic at this busy intersection.

    Good location for halfpipe that could be used with skateboards, rollerblades and bicycles.

    Path ends by LARS. Would be great, and much safer, if a path could connect to Ballaine. Know property is an issue but great if it could be resolved!

    Such a shame that the path ends with need to check in at the Visitor's center. Any chance of some sort of a pass through?

    Not sure if this is outside the boundaries but this area, where the multi-user ends, would benefit from a wider shoulder or separate bike path around Goldstream. Many aggressive, bullying drivers around this stretch.

    Connection of the bike path crossing the Chena to this area (along Hoselton) to Dale and around Airport Industrial, then with tie in to University Ave S and Van horn, or dike (Tria?) to Tanana lakes would be great!
