Watch out for the wild moose running around! A beautiful cycle trail that can be completed in a few hours at a leisurely pace.

Didn't walk the whole trail, but loved the parts we did walk. Went in January so super slippery in some places but not too bad.

Liked: Length, view, wildlife, water, people.... Disliked: Rough spots, some fast cyclists, various dogs, leaves on the trail creating a slippery surface. ALL in ALL, I LOVE IT!

This experience certainly lived up to the high praise given by previous reviewers. My 12 year old and I rented bikes at Pablos, at the north end of the trail. It was handy to have a pocket map of the trail but not necessary, as there were descriptive signs along the way and many of the landmarks along the way... More

One of Anchorage's hidden jewels, our walking trails throughout the entire town. The coastal trail is not the best but it is certainly probably the most well known and definitely worth the walk!

The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail connects with Anchorage's wonderful bike trails. You can literally circumnavigate the city with minimal interaction with road traffic. Ice skating in winter can be enjoyed near the trail at Westchester Lagoon where Parks and Recreation keep the ice cleared for skaters. Sometimes there is a burn barrel or two where you could warm up.

Walked the full 11 mile trail: Pretty, with some nice views but nothing spectacular (especially compared to the surrounding area). Well-maintained. Mosquito repellent is strongly recommended, especially near Earthquake Park.

Beautiful views and a great place to walk and bike. My husband enjoyed running early in the morning when it was quiet. This trail is downtown and right on the ocean.

Amazing walk along ocean - a bit of wilderness - saw eagle and lots of birds on lagoon. Multi-use trail with bikers, runners, walkers. Very fast tides. Incredible.

My favorite is to go for a bike ride and catch the trail. You have to watch out for moose and stay on your side of the trail. Busy because it is so nice. Great views of the ocean and the outskirts of the city. Wonderful way to spend the day
