A popular Anchorage area trailhead is closed after someone dumped hundreds of pounds of illegal and smelly waste.


Chugach State Park took to Facebook Tuesday to alert the public of its temporary closure because of 300 pounds of fish waste being dumped in the area of the Bird Ridge Trailhead.


No other information was given, including when the trailhead will reopen.


Last month, a black bear killed a teen on that same trail while competing in Bird Ridge Race.
