Winding gently down the coast from downtown to Kinkaid Park, Tony Knowles Coastal Trail offers bikers and walkers a chance to explore Anchorage's scenery and encounter some of its typical wildlife. The 18 km (11 mi) paved stretch will lead you past the fault line of the record 1964 earthquake, through forests, and to viewpoints of the ocean and North America's highest peak, Mount McKinley. Moose, bald eagles, and beluga whales frequent the area, so be on the lookout--and don't forget your binoculars. You can rent a bike just a few blocks from the trailhead at Downtown Bicycle Rental. With our world travel planner, Anchorage attractions like Tony Knowles Coastal Trail can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
