I love riding my bike on the coastal trail. It’s a beautiful and relaxing ride. It’s not very challenging so it’s perfect for a casual ride or when family comes to visit. Many people run, walk or roller blade here too. There’s also many places...More

I have walked, biked and ran on or near the coastal trail hundreds (maybe thousands) of times, and every time I see different things. The trail started near downtown and goes for nearly 11 miles to Kinkaid park, passing through different environments, including boreal forest,...More

A great place to walk, bike, or ski. Wildlife. Moose, eagles, bears, muskrat, hawks, owls, sandhill cranes and the occasional beluga whale in summer. Great views of upper Cook Inlet, Mt. Susitna, and Denali when it's out. Just keep an eye out for high speed...More

I use this trail regularly for my training. Busy enough to feel safe but not crowded. I like passing fellow skiers and bikers mixed up with nature.

The trail provided great sightseeing during the entire ride. Of course during certain sections there were people walking but they were very pleasant and responded to a vocal warning. There are a couple places mostly toward Kincaid Park that have some significant pills but nothing...More

The flowers along the trail in July were so beautiful. When you get a little ways down the trail you can see the city in the distance.

This trail is right in downtown Anchorage and takes you along the coast, it's a paved trail great for biking, walking, running, etc. Great for a lunch time walk or end of the day exercise if your visiting Anchorage for work or play. I recommend...More

One of my favorite places to walk during my lunch break from work. If you are staying downtown you could hop out of your hotel and take in the beautiful Cook Inlet:

I am not sure. I looked at Google maps which makes me think it was Alaska Pablo's Bicycles. Looking at the map, this makes me think this is where we got it. It was very easy to access the trail from this location. As a... More

I saw a moose in the early evening on the more remote portion of the trail past the airport. I saw no whales but I was on bicycle and did not spend extended time sitting along the shore line.
