Spent our last afternoon walking here in beautiful and sunny weather. What a treat! While there were a number of people walking, biking and running one should know there are bears close by and exercise bear-awareness. Signs of both bear and moose were evident. It was a wonderful 3+ hours of walking and we met several people to chat with... More

We were looking for a fun family outing that we could do with our small children (ages 6 and 4). After doing some research we decided to try out the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. We are so glad we did! We all had a wonderful time. We never saw any wildlife on the trail but we all had such a... More

We took the two youngest grandsons to a playground along this trail. They both loved it! Very nice and peaceful.

The coastal trail stretches along Cook inlet. It is a beautiful path with great views. on the sea and to the mountains beyond. It is very busy with cyclists and walkers. At many places yoe see a lot of birds, especially on the wet lands.

We did walk seven miles of this trail and were so glad we took the time to do it. There's a lot of talk about bears and moose along the trail, but we didn't see any. Just read up on what to do if you happen on to one of these fellows. Highly traveled on the Saturday we were there... More

We walked along here for a few miles and enjoyed the fresh air. The weather was perfect! We turned off somewhere south of the city and strolled through some very attractive suburban estates and streets before rejoining the main street back into town. We spent a couple of hours but you can take as long as you need!

We rented bikes in Anchorage and it is a very short ride to get to the trail. The first couple of miles are a little busier with joggers, walkers, strollers but you get to see some beautiful homes along the coast and it runs right along the water. An easy ride the whole way but the scenery is beautiful. We... More

nice long paved trail along the waterfront. Had a few hours before our evening flight so was able to get some exercise on a beautiful sunny day.
