“Love this place!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Great place for jetplane landing viewing on a clear day.
The Chalet is a great starting point for an easy hiking to the bush, make sure you make your way to the Sand Dune (~3 miles away)
An excellent place for an easy xcountry skiing as well, I dont ski so sledging is my top thing!

Gorgeous views. Took the coastal trail via bike and it was beautiful! Pretty view of mountains! While there totally saw a moose crossing a lot below!

“Urban wilderness”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

This former military property was converted to public recreation in the 80s. It is a world-class Nordic ski venue as well as a premier hiking and wild-life viewing location. There are trails of a variety of lengths and difficulties. Trail maps are available at the chalet and are strongly recommended. Moose and Bald Eagles are common, bears are present but less often seen. For those with the time, Kincaid Park is connected to downtown Anchorage by the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. The trail has been undergoing reconstruction this summer, but the repairs are nearly complete. In good weather it offers spectacular views of the Alaska Range and Cook Inlet. In addition to the moose and eagles, beluga whales can sometimes be observed from the trail.

“A useful park for outdoor activities and large functions”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

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.
