We walked along here for a few miles and enjoyed the fresh air. The weather was perfect! We turned off somewhere south of the city and strolled through some very attractive suburban estates and streets before rejoining the main street back into town. We spent a couple of hours but you can take as long as you need!

We rented bikes in Anchorage and it is a very short ride to get to the trail. The first couple of miles are a little busier with joggers, walkers, strollers but you get to see some beautiful homes along the coast and it runs right along the water. An easy ride the whole way but the scenery is beautiful. We... More

nice long paved trail along the waterfront. Had a few hours before our evening flight so was able to get some exercise on a beautiful sunny day.

Since it's a coastal trail, I had expected to see a lot of coastal sceneries. Maybe because we visited on a cloudy day, but there really wasn't much to see. I would definitely try a different trail if I revisit Anchorage in the future.

Best $16 we spent in Alaska. Rented bike to ride along paved path hugging the Cook Inlet. You pass by neighborhood parks, wooded areas, community ponds. It is well trafficked, & people are usually courteous when passing walkers or slower peddlers ("...on your left"). We saw our first moose with a calf near the airport area, beluga whales, sandhill cranes... More
