My first time riding this trail and I will definitely go a lot more! It gradually inclines and there’s one really long hill but I enjoy the challenge.

Trial was good. Watch out for the bumps caused from the repairs to the asphalt and the fastening points for barriers in the center of the bike trail. Some of them are marked by cone or spray paint

Parked at Alyeska Resort to start the ride through Girdwood. The end of the trail on the Bird side is right off the highway but most of the trail is above the highway with amazing views!

This is exactly, for the most part, the kind of ride we hoped for while visiting Alaska. Mostly rural, nice paved trail with more than a few rolling hills.

Nice paved path with plenty of views of Turnagain Arm and the nearby mountains across Seward Highway. We walked right up on three juvenile black bears having a ball. They were ambling along, like going to school, and would every once in a wile would stop to play, often standing on their hind legs to wrestle. We made a lot of noise, and they eventually left the trail, but not before we got photos. Also some great flowers (almost gone for season), mountain scenes, educational panels,?and small waterfalls coming out of the mountains.

Fairly flat trail, more uphill on the Bird to Gird direction, so you are way speedier on the way back (Gird to Bird). Well maintained trail with gorgeous views. Absolutely fantastic bike ride.

This trail is a large paved path about the width of one lane of a road that runs along the highway. I would consider this to be an easy trail. Good for kids biking. It is pretty exposed so wind can be a real problem (brrrr), but the exposure does provide some gorgeous views of the Cook Inlet! I wouldn’t call this a “hike”, more like a walk.

This is a paved trail with restrooms and stopping points. I bring my dogs on this trail and keep them leashed at all times. There are a few bikes that use this amazing trail and you don’t want your dog getting ran over. I pick this trail up at Bird Point right off the Seaward. 8 miles to Girdwood.

Completed a trail ride on my mountain bike from Glen Alps Trailhead up Powerline Pass, over the pass and down the backside into Indian Valley. I am not positive that this trail is the one we were on for the back portion of the trip as there was not any trail marking or signage. It was an awesome ride from the pass to Indian with larger rocks, gravel, and some scree on steep angled trail with switchbacks. Trail was pretty well maintained, we did find a large gully near the bottom of the descent which we had to avoid not to ride into full speed. After the downhill we rode through small creeks and drainages on the way to the road/highway destination.
