The Old  Carle Trail

The Old Carle Wagon Road was  one of the first routes used to get  to the Willow Creek Mining District. This was essentially a winter trail that followed the swamps. It started in Knik and went to  the western end of the Lake Lucille where it crossed the summer trail. Then went up what is now Fishook Road. The Summer Trail is an RS 2477 Trail called the Wet Gulch Trail. The Old Carle is not currently an RS 2477 but could be applied for.
