Great little hike that gives a fantastic view! A nice hike that pays off with a great view of Campbell Creek Gorge and the city down below. Follow the trail from the parking lot, taking a left on the Spencer Loop Trail after you cross the bridge. After about 0.85 miles you will come to the part of the trail called Wall Street. As the trail starts to turn to the south, there will be a foot path leading east up the hill. Follow this path for 0.17 miles till you reach an intersection. Head left and downhill till you come out on a ledge that gives a wonderful view of Campbell Creek far below and a view of Anchorage in the distance. You can hike back the way you came or follow Spencer Loop Trail all the way around for added mileage. Trail is best hiked in the summer months. Spencer Loop Trail is open to cross country skiing only during the winter.

Good easy hike, nothing too steep. If you do choose to go out on the spur at the eastern point of the loop you have the option to continue on several other trails. Reccomend keeping this app and your phone's location service on during the hike as a quick reference tool as there are a few forks where it isnt clear which way to go. Overall good time and great view of the city if you go out on the eastern spur.

This is a favorite of ours when we just want to do a little hiking or geocaching in city limits.

Not a good view of the gorge. Simple hike if you aren't looking for a view.

A nice trail if you want to go for a walk and get out of the city while still being in the city.

Pleasant easy-to-moderate hike in Far North Bicentennial Park. Moose along the trail. Nice view of Anchorage below. Lots of bear scat; no bears seen along our path.
