Visiting Happy Trails
Are you looking for dogsled rides? The Happy Trails dogs and mushers are busy training and racing during the snow season, so we do not offer sled rides - but our webmaster does! Josh and Annie are running Wings and Paws kennel tours and dogsled rides in Talkeetna. They are also a retirement yard for us, so you will get to meet and run with Happy Trails huskies.
For the 2013 summer season Happy Trails Kennels will open for tours from Memorial Day ( May 27) to Labor Day (Sept 2). Tours begin at 2:00 P.M. daily. Tours last about 90 minutes.
Book a reservation for your tour on our Booking Page.
For tour details, see our brochure, reproduced below, but note that we no longer have a morning tour. Driving directions are at the bottom of this page.
