Beautiful trails. We rented bikes from Pablo (see Tripadvisor review) and took off on a great adventure.

They could include more interpretive signage along the walk as well as more seating. Also the rubbish along the banks need to be cleaned more regularly.

We are so lucky to have this coastal trail for our use in Anchorage. Great place to exercise me and my dogs. I walk this trail all year and take amazing photographs along the way. So much better than exercising indoors.

Rented bikes at Pablo's then set off on this amazing trail. Scenic overlooks are exactly that breathtaking. Make sure you listen to Pablo and stay away from the mud flats as they can and have trapped the unwary in a cement like grip holding them there for the incoming tide. There is a large moose population in the park and... More

If you can ride a bike, do the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. We did a 20 miler, could have went farther (trail continued). Many hikers and bikers on the trail, so if you are afraid of bear or moose, don't be. There is safety in numbers. Beautiful views, well maintained trail, views of Mt. McKinley. We saw a moose at...

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
