Rented a bike and hit the trail 08/23/16. Really nice trail; paved and wide. Terrific views the whole way. Met a friendly moose family. I took the alternate route back to downtown, via the seaplane airport area - highly recommend this; super interesting. You have to go along city streets part of the way to see this area (and traffic... More

Some girls even flashed some skin here taking photos. Some other kids were camping on the beach. Canada Geese were chilling on the beach. You could get some great exercise here. I was able to walk out of my hotel, the Captain Cook, and reach the trail in minutes.

It depends what you are looking to get out of this trail. I enjoy a scenic run and it was great for it. You are on the coast. I started once at Kincaid Park and once at 4th St. If you start at Kincaid, be prepared for a large hill to go down which means you've got to go back... More

My wife and I have taken walks on the trail on several visits to Anchorage, most recently in August 2016. You're in an urban area, but with nature (including water) along the trail. The trail accommodates walkers, runners and bicyclists. If you're not a cyclist (or maybe even if you are one) watch out for them. Many seem to go... More

We did this trail immediately after landing at the airport in Anchorage. I wanted to try to keep the kids up to adjust to Alaska time and this was a great way to do it. We rented bikes from Pablo's across the street and really enjoyed the bike ride. To top it off, we saw 3 moose out on the... More

We walked from the Bridge restaurant up to the lagoon. Aside from a place to walk it wasn't very interesting. At the Lagoon, we went inland and walked back to the downtown through some neighborhoods.

Excellent bike trail and even saw a few moose. Pablo's bike rentals is the place to go for bikes from kid bikes to adult bikes and he even has baby carriers for the smaller ones. Great service. Our 8 year old and 6 year old had no problem on the trail and we ended up going on a 14 mile... More
