  • Had a blast biking the Coastal Trail! If you have a decent fitness level, you should be able to do the entire thing, as it's fairly flat. The views along the entire thing are stunning!! Plus great...

  • This is a great place for biking! Used heavily in some areas and times of year so it can get crowded!

  • Beautiful and safe trail. It’s overall flat, plenty of other people utilizing too. Saw 4 moose chowing down on plentiful vegetation in woods. Good views of water. Can walk along water’s edge at some points. It’s not marked, but seemingly not prevented, either.
  • Excellent biking trail. It’s mostly flat, except for a few hills around the airport and at the end by Kincaid park. My favorite stretch is between the airport where you can view planes land and kincaid park. We saw some moose in there. The earthquake park was fascinating as well. Great way to spend a day in anchorage.
