Loved walking on this beach! It was exciting when the planes took off right over my head, but then got peaceful as I got farther away from the runways (which you cannot see from the beach at all). I think you can walk all the way to Kincaid Park on the beach, but I am not sure, and then you have to get back to your car.....

I love this place. The trails can get you all the way to downtown anchorage. Once you park here, follow the dirt path down to the water. Great place to hang out and just look at the inlet. You can walk for long distances, find beach glass, and my personal favorite, an upside down buried car. Other than this relic, it's very clean, lots of families having picnics, nice tourist spot cuz its a beach you can actually put your toes in. You can also find some sea glass here, and don't go too close to he cliffs. The rocks roll after a large plane passes over.

An earlier review described this as the prettiest spot in Anchorage. I think that may have been a joke. this is a parking lot at the end of a runway.

Next to LAX, I can't think of a better spot to watch airplanes take off than here at Point Woronzof. When I lived in Alaska, I would frequently ride my bicycle to Point Woronzof and sit on one of the many benches and watch the massive jets take off from Ted Stevens International. It never ceases to amaze me how incredible it is to watch airplanes take off from an airport. Point Woronzof is about 13 minutes from downtown Anchorage and is a cheap activity for a family. It is roughly 7 miles one way on the Coastal Trail from downtown Anchorage.

This is w wonderful place to start off on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. You can do an hour or more of walking or biking (what ever rolls or walks). Breathtaking views of Mount McKinley and the Alaska Range. Some times an optical illusion make the mountains look as close as the edge of the water other times the recede into the soft hazy sun light. I have seen giant walls of mud on the opposite bank break down as if they could send a tsunami, only to realize that it is just the optics of the heat and air making a mountain out of a mole hill. Some time the sun so low it casts shadows of the mountains on the clouds as if the light it self came out of the earth. There are posted hours for the parking lots and trail but nobody ever stopped me for watching the sun emerge from behind the mountains at 2AM with deep purple peaks against a cerulean sky, yellow and gold edging the crags. The light is of the most unusual quality/, more often from the side then on top of you.
