The Bogard-Engstrom Road area is one of Wasilla’s hidden gems. With the icy roads and constant stop-and-go of the Palmer-Wasilla Hwy, lately I have found myself trying to avoid it as much as possible and take routes with less stop lights. Bogard road has really grown on me in these last few months! The speed limit is usually around 50, with minimal slowdowns depending on the cars in front of you. There are really only three stop lights on the entire stretch.
Engstrom Road is only about 2 miles from the Palmer-Wasilla and Trunk Road intersection. You can also eventually connect with Wasilla-Fishhook Road with a few turns.
Subdivisions include: Shorewood, Hart Lake Estates, Horizon Estates, Wolf Lake, Aspen Ridge Estates, Harmony Acres and Rover Ridge. There are no less than 5 lakes in the area, and “one of the premier private airports in Alaska:” Wolf Lake Airport.
This area offers beautiful mountain views and quiet privacy, with quick commutes to Palmer, Wasilla and even Anchorage. The following photos were taken off Engstrom Road and its connecting streets. Click on any photo to see a larger version.
