Gorgeous views. Took the coastal trail via bike and it was beautiful! Pretty view of mountains! While there totally saw a moose crossing a lot below!
This former military property was converted to public recreation in the 80s. It is a world-class Nordic ski venue as well as a premier hiking and wild-life viewing location. There are trails of a variety of lengths and difficulties. Trail maps are available at the chalet and are strongly recommended. Moose and Bald Eagles are common, bears are present but... More
One of the most capable parks in Anchorage for multipurpose use, such as weddings, school groups, sports teams and races. Not really as fit for a casual 'stroll' as it is for a bike ride, run, ski or soccer game.

I love Kincaid Park. Due to its location, you almost feel like you are out-of-town. The City of Anchorage does an excellent job of keeping the grounds maintained, there are bathrooms available, and it is a great place to hop on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail for a run, walk, or bike ride.
