Kincaid park was our opportunity to have a close encounter on the Moose kind. We were told that the chance of finding Moose wild in the park was about 90% and we were not disappointed. We were prepared for a 6-7 mile walk and we were lucky enough to see bull Moose at very close quarters ( it walked calmly... More

The park is famous for its trail and the flora and fauna. A resting place for seniors and playing place for children. A walk around is worth.

Our B&B proprietor suggested that we visit the park in the evening to see wild moose; she was right. After less than a half hour in the park we happened upon an adolescent and mother moose in a clearing about 100 feet from the road. Great photo opportunity.

Kincaid Park is only about a 20 minute drive from downtown Anchorage. The park has a lot of trails for hiking, walking, biking and skiing. The landscape is absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful park that makes you forget you are in the city. Even saw a moose meandering along one of the paths.

We took the Coastal Trail 11 mile bike ride to Kincaid Park and loved what we found. The park is pristine, well-maintained, and user friendly. Was worth the long bike ride for downtown Anchorage. Check out the food vendor at the trail head near the community center.

I did not have enough time to even partially explore this park. I was mainly looking for a vantage point for photos over the water, and so I stuck to the one trail. It was more up and down than someone from the Midwest U.S. is used to, but if I didn't have activity induced asthma, it would have been... More

I have ridden trails in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Colorado, and Utah, and Kincaid offered something different and excellent. The trails were tacky and smooth, like Laffy Taffy, and eminently carveable. They are fast with excellent flow and enough hills to make you work. I rented a bike from Chain Reaction Cycles and rode the south trails two days. I saw... More

We found it too large to make much progress on foot when limited for time and would have been better off with bikes!
