We rented two bikes from Pablo's very near the start of the trail in downtown Anchorage. Nice, comfortable bikes on a relatively flat, paved trail. We are two fit senior citizens and we were out for about 2 1/2 hours but did not complete the...More

I am a terrible bicycle rider, but this trail was perfect for my and my family. Pretty flat, with gorgeous views of the water and the woods. Moose spotted!

Good fun - rented bikes downtown, hit the trail on busy day. Beautiful scenery. Lots of places to stop for scenery and photos. It had more hills than expected. Trail clearly marked.

The trail is clear now for running. My wife and I have been running it this week. Have a great time in Anchorage. Try the Flat Top Mountain Hike while you are here.
