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

It is a fun way to get around town and since the creek runs through it, you can often see salmon during the summer. Great for biking or walking.

We were expecting more from this coastal trail. It looked like the place for the local people to bring the dogs for exercise. I did enjoy see the beautiful breeds romping around; but expected to see more people being active.

They could include more interpretive signage along the walk as well as more seating. Also the rubbish along the banks need to be cleaned more regularly.

We are so lucky to have this coastal trail for our use in Anchorage. Great place to exercise me and my dogs. I walk this trail all year and take amazing photographs along the way. So much better than exercising indoors.

Rented bikes at Pablo's then set off on this amazing trail. Scenic overlooks are exactly that breathtaking. Make sure you listen to Pablo and stay away from the mud flats as they can and have trapped the unwary in a cement like grip holding them there for the incoming tide. There is a large moose population in the park and... More
