This is a trail for walking or running or biking that is 11 miles long in Anchorage and follows the coast line in the city. It seems to be in use all the time by people out for a dose of beautiful Alaska scenery as well as exercise. On any given day you are likely to see people walking dogs or walking with their children as well as on bicycles or skateboards or roller skates. There are a number of locations to get on and off so the full 11 miles is not necessary to travel on any given day.
It is also nice to travel knowing you are not competing with traffic for the space. No motorized vehicles are allowed.
There are a ton of scenic spots to stop to rest or take photos. As well as many places to view the wildlife. It is very common to hear of moose on the trail.
This also connects to earthquake park.
For those not from the area, this is a great way to see quite a bit of Anchorage, find out some of the history while getting in a nice long walk or ride. Downtown has several locations for bicycle rental if you don’t have one.
