Love the inlet views from the beach! Some of the footpaths can be steep if you aren't wearing the proper shoes

10 miles off the Glen highway and five dollars to park. It's great for trail running and biking as it's mostly level with a spectacular view the full 7 miles to the other end of the lake. The first mile the trail is mostly shared with ATVs but everyone was good about slowing down to keep the amount of dust down. After that the running/biking trail occasionally meets up with the ATV trail. Definitely worth it.

Almost all the snow is gone! Easy ride, not much altitude change. Good for getting a taste of the outdoors and mostly not interacting with street traffic.

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.

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.

Love these trails.

Busy winter trail with many fat tire bikers. First few miles are easy, but the last mile to Near Point Peak is hard. Overall great hike, great views, and great workout.

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 !

stunning views. easy trail to walk, run, hike or even bike

Can bike to the end of the Wolverine trail cut off from Prospect parking lot.

Foggy the whole time!! Got a peek of the mountains near the air strip. Will need to come back on a clear day . Very easy just long.

just awosome and saw a baby moose.

Always beautiful no matter the weather. Lots of hiking around. Great for kayaking during summer, unless it gets super windy. Sweet trail to ride your bike on too. Close to anchorage, really good ice cream shop on the road there.

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!

We very much enjoyed our first walk on the trail. Still having the remnants of a cold we only managed 2 miles but plan to return and bike Much more of it. We also plan to kayak as the water looks very inviting! People are mostly respectful with their dogs, being mindful to leash them as they pass our young children.

My most recent trip to Eklutna S.P. and the Eklutna Lakeside Trail was a leisure walk from the parking lot. In the past, I rode my bike and my 6-wheeler. Even though the trail splits back and forth for the walkers and bikers, and for the 4/6 wheelers, I do suggest going on days when the 4/6 wheelers are not allowed on the trail. If it is a dry day you might be fighting the dust from these vehicles. You should check, but the last time I looked, the 4/6 wheelers were allowed Sunday through Wednesday. The trail is very nice for all including small children, and the elevation is mostly flat. In recent years, the lake level has been a bit low, so you can explore all the dried and twisted tree trunks and limbs along the way. I do suggest bringing binoculars so you can see the bears and sheep above.

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

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.
