I don't know how to ride a bike but I rented one anyway with my husband just to enjoy this trail. The view is amazing, you feel like you're all alone on this trail enjoying nature but in fact every couple of minutes you see someone enjoying the trail too. I love when the train was passing and we saw... More

Trail condition was great. Not too crowded on a Friday in early May. Only dislike is that there is no water or restrooms until you get to Kincaid Park. Take water and snacks, picnic at the tables at Kincaid Park before riding back to town.

I saw 6 moose while riding along the trail. I really enjoyed bike riding through the forest and along the shore.

I had a great time riding this trail, definitly worth renting a bike for the day and doing the whole 18 miles, you will see some wildlife as well as some beautiful scenic views!

I lived right off this paved trail for many years - it's one of the best things about Anchorage! It connects to a number of other trails also. It runs 18 miles out and back from downtown Anchorage along the coast (as the name suggests). You can rent bikes downtown at Pablo's. There are lovely ocean views and mountain views... More

The Trail starts downtown and goes around the Sound past Weschester Lagoon ( a favorite spot for resting and a kids playground, Earthquake Park and the airport to Kincaid Park and their Interpretive Center. Round trip is around 18 miles and 3 hours but stop and enjoy the sights. Bike rentals for visitors can be purchased downtown. Travel through a... More

Rented bikes from Pablo's Bicycle Rental which is only about 2 blocks from where you get on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. The trail is a great way to get out for some exercise and to experience the "wilder" side of Anchorage in a few hours. Watched planes landing and saw moose, eagle and sandhill crane among other things. Pablo... More

Loved it.The scenery was stunning. The snow covered mountains across the inlet were so beautiful. My only regret is that I missed getting to Earthquake Park which was my planned destination by 150 yards. Providence Emergency centre people though were wonderful, put the broken arm in a half cast and let me complete my holiday. I will go back and... More
