Very nice multi use trail with great coastal views. We rented bikes and did the whole trail. It is well maintained and makes for a relaxing morning. Great views of Denali in the distance (it was crazy clear when we were then) and we heard that moose like to frequent the trail.

Rented bikes and rode the trail. The scenery is great, the trail itself is well maintained, there are many hills. We didn't get to ride the entire trail as we only rented our bikes for a few hours. We would have liked to get to the park at the end but that was about 11 miles. There are bikes, walkers,... More

This trail goes on for miles all along the water. I did a 16km run and loved it... so, so beautiful. You can even rent bikes for the trail...

We had a day in Ankorage while waiting for our flight home the next morning and decided to rent bikes and ride the Coastal trail. Didn't see any wildlife, although we had hoped to see a moose, but the ride was beautiful, state park on one side and ocean on the other. The airport runway for takeoff goes right over... More

Great views looking back on Anchorage. Good overall look at what the coast has to offer. Each park along the way has something to offer. A great way to see it is to bike ride, but driving will do you well.

My family and I biked most of the trail on a gorgeous sunny morning. Beautiful coastal views. Bring water as there are no places to buy water. Go biking on this trail!

Depending on the section it can have excellent views or just views of the mud flats at low tide. Great option for joggers and walkers to get their exercise.

We rented bikes downtown, and set off on the trail! We ended up biking the whole trail, and that was a lot of fun. The best part is we got to see a moose with her calf very close to the trail. We just had to stop and take pictures! The views along the trail are beautiful, especially on the... More

I rented a bike and did the trail a few hours. I had a pretty solid time. The trail is close to downtown and is very easy riding. If you start from down town and want to see wildlife it might not be the best trail to be on, but it has a great view of the water
