ANCHORAGE - Concerns of grizzly bear activity have prompted state officials to close a popular trail.

Chugach State Park officials have closed a portion of the Indian to Girdwood bike trail, which parallels the Seward Highway south of Anchorage.

The closed section is from a one-mile stretch, from Mile Post 96 to 97, near Bird Point.
