This is a great trail! If you stay at the Copper Whale Inn, it is just down the hill about 2 blocks. There are a lot of very good trails in Anchorage. Chester Creek, and Campbell come to mind immediately. Take one, you wont be disappointed!

If you're a local or a visitor, this is a perfect way to get downtown.

I walked briefly along this trail and what a beautiful trail it is. In the winter, you can cross country ski or run or use your fat tire bike. Great views throughout and many jump on/off points and scenic pull outs. Excellent way to get some exercise in while visiting Anchorage.

Anchorage has a wonderful trail for bicycling, walking or, in the winter, cross-country skiing that goes along the coastline of Cook Inlet. There are maps available online and at the tourist office and the tide schedule so you can time your walk for viewing the bore tides. Watch for moose and, in some rare instances, bears!

Quiet wilderness experience; great views; saw eagle; saw Mt. McKinley and Sleeping Lady. Wished we knew boretide schedule so we could have seen that come in.

Nice place to walk or bike ride. The views are lovely especially at sunset. Can be a little busy on nice days.

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!
