The perfect place to get away from the city and refresh yourself in nature. Just a short walk from the parking area is a nice walk over the river on the footbridge. You can get takeout and have a picnic in the park. We were excited to find some snow there in May.

Lots of great trail options that allow all ages, of many skill levels to hike throughout this large area. There were very few parking spots available when we arrived but we only ran into a few people while hiking. The hike itself was relatively flat, making it a good option for us since we don't have a lot of terrain... More

While there are tens of thousands of acres of parks in city limits, the two largest are Far North Bicentennial and Kincaid, respectively. Far North borders the Chugach State Park on its eastern border, and the terrain gradually increases in altitude as you... More

This is a large wilderness park on the edge of Anchorage. Lots of hiking trails and wildlife. Generally there are many other hikers and bikers but bear spray is a good idea as there have been attacks and there are lots of bears in the park. Most of the park staff workers carry bear spray as there are many programs... More

Such a beautiful drive through the woods to a high overlook of the city amid beautiful private homes! At times, it felt like darkness had already fallen with the tall trees and shady paths of thick grass and flowers. We just knew there were a lot of happy moose, deer, rabbits and other wildlife enjoying the woods as much as... More

It is very interesting and has hiking trails. But one must be very careful and very alert as there are many bears who hang out there. Black and Brown bears. Be sure to heed the advice of any signage.
