Not up there yet, wife is up there now though. Apparently lots of gravel roads and expect your car do get a few dings. As for trails, I have heard it is awesome and 4wd a must. They (Kodiak council) are in the throws of redesigning all the trail system for both summer and winter to enable fair use for all the sports; car 4wd, ATV, horses, hiking, skiing, snowmobiles etc, etc. It seems like they cater well. Wife's advice is that if you want to get out anywhere on Kodiak then have a 4WD or you will be stuck to the few blacktops. I'll let you know more after I drive up there next month! What are you going there for/to do? Coastguard?
