Easy to take the wrong path in the snowy months and end up on some random mountain thigh deep in snow. Needs better signage.

I rented a bike from in town and immediately set out on the trail - it was great! Beautiful, paved route along the coast. Some of the route is along the water, most is through the trees nearby. Can become quite exhausting on the south half in the hills, prepare yourself! Routes beneath the approach end of Anchorage Int'l runways.

This was my first hike in Alaska. Went on a mostly clear day and had some really pretty views. Could see the city. I didn’t bring my dog but could have. Not too steep.

Great afternoon winter walk. We took an hour and a half doing the loop. Pretty busy with fat bikes and cross country skiing but not to the point that it took away from the walk. No animal sightings. I look forward to walking this trail in the spring and summer!

I loved the trails but a little overwhelming as to which one to go on, they do have maps ect though. Beautiful scenery and quiet, but not too quiet if you're a person hiking solo you'll feel safe.

don't go in the winter it sucks....everything is groomed for skiing

Trail was iced over. Made for a slippery walk. Should have brought my micro spikes

Busy trail. Mostly flat. Good views.

Really enjoyed this trail. Feel safe enough to bring the kids along next time and if u have a decent jogging stroller u can bring it on this hike ! Plenty of people around !

expansive views, decent trail, wide open, and lots of options for detours

Mosquitoes can be thick in the wooded sections.

Beautiful views of the ocean, mountains, and downtown Anchorage. Enjoy airplanes at the end of the runway.

For long walks, short jogs, or biking... it's a great trail!

Beautiful trail! Rented our bikes at Pablo's, easy trail, very scenic!

Easy loop trail with scenic overlook of Anchorage.

Great paved trail for running, biking, skating, or just strolling along the coast. It has coastal views and nice forest views.

Went to a wedding al Alpenglow Lodge and the tram ride to the top was gorgeous. Got off the tram and hiked barefoot (wasn't prepared, heels are dangerous) to the top of the peak. Super easy to do. So beautiful and worth doing. Decided to go back and hike the whole thing another day when I was prepared! Amazing views and the top is well worth the trek. Not very challenging.

Nice easy and relaxing

Biked the trail to Kincaid Park and back on a rented mountain bike. Stopped for a bit in Kincaid to do some mountain biking. I highly recommend Kincaid park for any adventurist. It was my first time mountain biking and I had an amazing time. Didn't see any wildlife but amazing views throughout.

Did this on rented bikes with my son. Not a difficult trail and paved the whole way. Did not see any wildlife apart from the occasional beetle. But many of the other sights were neat for a first time visit to Alaska. The foliage is beautiful, and there are good views of the bay. Trail goes right by the airport and you can take a nice break in that area and watch sea planes come and go, as well as the big jets right over head. Nice way to spend an afternoon if you're new to Anchorage.

More of an moderate hike as it gets fairly steep.

This is a fine trail network, close to town. It has a huge parking lot at the trailhead. There is also a wide grassy area for sports. The trail meanders though quaking aspen and pine woods, and has some fair views of distant mountains. There is a creek that runs through the middle. This trail appears to be very popular with bikers.

This is a great hike, if you happen to be in this area of Kenai. The hike to the upper lake is well worth the effort. The trail continues well beyond the upper lake. I might map it and log it on All Trails the next time I am in the area. This is an area with LOTS of bears! Be aware!

While you are doing this hike, take the slight detour, and see Russian River Falls. The falls are nothing spectacular, but this is where the salmon move upstream, and where lots of bears go to feed on them.

Lovely views of the sea and mountains with Anchorage sewn into the middle. We didn't see any moose but birds filled the air with song. Watch for bikes on multi-purpose portions.

This is an easy family friendly walk or bike. There are beautiful views along the walk and tons of moose (just be aware of the times of the year moose are more aggressive). We didn't do the whole thing only a section and saw 6 moose so its a pretty good bet you'll see something.

Marked very well until you get to the road and then you make your own way up...which to me was FUN.. some snow still but not much. muddy right now 5/13/2017. Dogs are allowed here and you have to pay for parking. clean trails and the views are unless the more you walk around....
