This is the trail to walk or bike if you want to go from downtown Anchorage to where the Kincaid Park is located. You can cross over a bridge and go through trails that are absolutely stunning. From The TKC trail you can see the sights off of the bluffs, this is also called Earthquake Park - part of it... More

We wanted get a bike ride in and view Anchorage from nature. The trail is well maintained and has lots of access points and stops for viewing the water. We were passing through some lush foliage and 2 moose right by the path eating! A highlight of the ride!

It is easy to access and I went there 2 times for running. Nice surrounding... long distances possible (i did around 10k's in each direction). Would love to have such a nice trial at home...

This is probably the easiest and safest paved trail in Alaska, especially if you're on your own - except you still need to watch out for the wildlife, especially the moose that happily enjoying chomping on the foliage on either side of the trail. They are everywhere, and on a bike if you come around a corner too fast, it... More

This trail is a gift. Right in town, you can hop on it and just go. Everyone is friendly and tourists stopping to snap pictures, it's just great energy. And the VIEW! You can't beat it for a city trail. Go to the end at Kincaid Park, it's gorgeous, pack a lunch and stop at Chester Creek for a beautiful... More

A beautifully maintained trail along the Cook Inlet. You can walk or bike and the scenery varies from ponds to beach. We even saw some Sand Hill Cranes along the way. A great way to relax and enjoy the peaceful side of Anchorage

The Coastal Trail is a beautiful half day bike ride that offers the opportunity for wildlife viewing. We saw a air of eagles nesting on the cliffs. Our friends went in early evening an encountered multiple moose. We would highly recommend as an Anchorage activity.

This is a great trail to bike (hire a bike for the day). you get great views of the area and we came across a moose and calf within the first couple of miles so watch out from near the Airport onwards. Make it a loop by going down the Raspberry road from the top of Kincaid Park and get... More
