One of the most capable parks in Anchorage for multipurpose use, such as weddings, school groups, sports teams and races. Not really as fit for a casual 'stroll' as it is for a bike ride, run, ski or soccer game.

We started out to just walk around the lake. Turns out you cannot "just walk around the lake," as we found out. We survived the experience using blind luck, a little woodsmanship and guidance from a local hiker. We did not see any large animals, but did run into a couple fellows who had seen and photographed a moose earlier. The trail system is still under construction in places; we ended up hiking from the "wrong end," which we discovered when we came up on the "Trail Closed" sign from the back. The trails get used by mountain bikers as well as hikers. The trails we were on did not stay level for very long, and were moderately challenging in places. Trail signage is limited to non-existent. Outside of our start point at the lake parking lot, we found only one other sign in our two-hour walk. Only a minor irritant, since we were out for an adventure anyway. Overall, a nice piece of near-wilderness in close proximity to the city.

Located southwest of the airport, it is quite wild, even though it is located in the city limits. Saw moose (fairly close) and a brown bear (from a distance). Lots of trails, good maps and trail markers.

Easy walking, interesting wildlife, paved trail-and the moose (luckily) ignored me. Saw a few people, but not swamped with them, and lots of beautifulplantlife -well grazed by moose.

My husband and I walked part of the coastal trail around 7 pm - we saw two bull moose right off the path (one crossed right in front of us) and a cow with a calf. I almost walked right up to the bull because it was so still it looked like a statue. Luckily it moved before I reached out to touch it! Beautiful park - definitely worth checking out.
