A Great Park in Anchorage, AK

I spend about 3 hours in the park and was amazed at the cleanliest of the park & sundering. This is a great place for the whole family.

I love this 9+ mile paved trail. More often than not, you will see moose, ducks, an occasional fox and rare bear. I wish it were longer and went out farther south of town. Be careful of homeless people camped in the woods. Also some of the moose can become aggressive.

The trail takes you from downtown Anchorage to the chalet at Kincaid Park if your legs are up to the climb. It's beautiful and passes along the ocean with lots of places to sit and enjoy the view. You might even see salmon coming in from the ocean to Westchester Lagoon at the estuary if you time it right in... More

We started at Westchester Lagoon and walked along until we hit Lyn Ary Park (which my girls loved!). It is beautiful! Other parts of the trail (like near Earthquake Park and Point Woronzoff) are right next to the road, which made it less appealing than the area near Westchester Lagoon.

It was a very nice trail to take some quiet time with the bike! I wanted to see moose but haven't seen any :( Maybe just not my day ;)

We rented bikes and enjoyed the variety of the trail. Beginning in Anchorage, it fees like a city park then it slowly transitions to Oceanside then back into a wooded area. I saw pictures advertising Moose and thought it was probably unlikely that we would see any so close to the city. We went around a turn and saw a... More

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!

I run, bike, or ski here on a daily basis. This trail cannot be beat as far as inter-city trails go!

If you're a local or a visitor, this is a perfect way to get downtown. You'll have fabulous views of the Alaska Range, Cook Inlet, and downtown Anchorage, and you can ride your bike or walk to do stuff downtown. I take this trail to & from work all summer long. It's so fabulous that I often stop to take... More
