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!

A great place to see moose. Looks like it would be nice for cross country skiing as well. I would visit here every time I come to Anchorage.

Whatever you want in a hike - this place has it! I can't tell how many times I have enjoyed the views and even run into a moose or two (and hidden behind a tree). There are rumors of bears but I did not see any. The view from the bluff area look down Turnagain Arm and across the inlet.... More
