Great trail for biking! I rented a 2 seater bike for me & my son from Pablo’s and experience on the trail was amazing.

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful winding trail with challenging hills to the south. Look for the air traffic on approach to Ted Stevens!

Great trail for cycling! You'll almost definitely encounter moose - and probably not just one but several. The trail also provides scenic views of Anchorage, the surrounding mountain ranges and Knik Arm. And if you are into plane spotting: Point Woronzof at milepost 4 is right by Anchorage Airport's runway and a good place to watch the jets land and take off.

Awesome trail! Not too strenuous with magnanimous opportunities to see moose and the beauty of anchorages coast. I'm my experience, a moose dashed out of the woods within 5 yards away after earthquake park, exciting and scary , but I lived to write this review. Wouldn't trade that memory for anything in the world!

I rented a bike from Downtown bike rentals. They were very focused on getting me the right bike. I test rode several, got the right one and had a great time..
I really got a good vibe from the team there

It was a very pretty walk. Definitely the best view of the scenic mountains and water in anchorage. It is quite busy and much longer than it looks! But I enjoyed it. I would do it again!

Went walking with some girlfriends. I want to go back when I have some time to bike ride. Beautiful trail. However, take a lot of bug spray. We applied before we hit the trail, but somehow towards the end we got attacked by mosquitos. Still, I can't wait to go back and bike the entire thing.

This is a nice urban type path good for walking, running, and biking. This is not a hiking trail. I prefer the more wilderness type trails, but this was a nice paved path and a good walk.
