About
Go above and beyond Anchorage and get into the mountains with a local leading the way. Drive 30 minutes to the the Flattop Scenic Overlook in Glen Alps. Get acquainted with the landscape as you are now 2,000 feet up looking over Anchorage and the Cook Inlet. From the viewpoint, your guide will point out points of interest that can be see from here. Your guide will fit you for a bike and helmet, then the group will head into the mountains. You will be on a wide double track trail that is dirt and gravel. The fat tire bikes are mountain bikes with 5 inch tires; making them very stable with a lot of cushion and fun to ride. The valley floor is home to moose, bears, ptarmigan and the mountains are home to Dall sheep and wolves. Learn the natural and human history of the Chugach Mountains along the way. Five miles up valley you have left the city and most people behind. Rest next to a small mountain lake while listening to the ground squirrels and birds chips away before heading back.

Great trail, amazing views, fresh blueberries and MOOSE!
Sep 2021
The views in Chugach State Park were amazing, but I enjoyed the deep reds and bright yellows of the changing tundra plants just as much. We biked to an alpine lake with crystal clear water. Our guide, Caitlin, knew where to look for blueberries and we stopped to pick and eat blueberries along the way and again at the lake. Caitlin also had an eye to see wildlife that I would have missed. On the way down she spied a bull and cow moose grazing together in the valley below us. If we go back to Anchorage I would like to do this ride again.

We saw a moose!
Jul 2021
My husband and I visited Alaska for our honeymoon and loved it. When we went on the bike tour it was raining and still so fun; I'd say the rain added an extra element of excitement. It was definitely a workout, but worth the views!

Our guides were super knowledgeable, and were able to answer most of our many questions regarding Alaskan outdoors. They picked us up downtown and were able to drop back off where they picked us up.

All in all, we biked 8-9 miles into the park, were able to experience the outdoors quite a bit, and we saw a moose! 10/10 would recommend.

I would also recommend wearing pants/leggings and a jacket if you are sensitive to poison oak/ivy. Alaska has their own variety (cow parsnip - reactive when exposed to sunlight) that lined the trails we biked on.

Great Way to Start Alaska
This was the first activity we did after arriving in Alaska. Even though it was cold and drizzling and we are not expert mountain bikers, it was awesome. Our guide Maggie was the best. She was patient and had fun facts about living in Alaska . We had so much fun!

Great excursion
Jul 2021
Loved doing this. The weather wasn't great, it was quite foggy, so we couldnt see the scenery. But that was okay. We had a blast biking on the rocky roads with our fat tires. The company was great - good guide, offered all the equipment needed, even rain gear. The only negative was that we ended early.. It was supposed to go until 12:30pm, but we ended before noon.

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We're thrilled you had a blast riding on the fat bikes - they really are a lot of fun! Maggie is a wonderful guide, and the rain gear is perfect for those wet days. With transportation included, we're usually done biking around noon (2 hours of biking), and then it takes about 30 minutes to load the bikes and transport the group back to downtown Anchorage. If you choose to meet us at the trailhead, your tour technically ends early because you don't need to be transported to/from the trailhead. Have a great time in Alaska! Cheers, Frankie

So cool! We visited in August 2020 and this was our first activity since arriving in Anchorage. Elly was knowledgeable and made it super fun. We may or may not have gotten stuck on some rocks but it was the hardest laugh I’ve had in awhile! We also got to see 2 moose and a coyote so we definitely felt like we had the full experience of wildlife and mountains!

Great Experience
Jun 2020
Had a great experience on the Chugach tour with Elly. She was a fantastic guide, would recommend to anyone visiting the area for the first time like myself. Fat tire bikes are a ton of fun, more stable than normal mtn biking, and will still get your heart rate going. Views incredible and even got to see some moose! Coordinating the trip was very easy. Nothing but good things to say.

Beautiful and fun ride!
Aug 2019
Our family had such a good ride with Elly @ Alaska Trail Guides. The ride itself was beautiful, the Chugach State Park is gorgeous. The bikes are so fun to ride. We spotted a moose eating right beside the trail, it was very cool! Elly was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable about the area and patient when we fell just a little behind. She was also prepared with water and snacks. Great ride for families and we highly recommend it!
