It surprises many travelers to Alaska that the urban Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is one of the best places to see wildlife in Anchorage. This guided bike tour takes guests along that meandering path with plenty of stops at interpretive signs and displays, for photos ops, and the occasional moose sighting.
One of the best ways to see wildlife in Anchorage.
The local bike guide meets guests at the Dena'ina Center in downtown Anchorage. After transferring by van to Kincaid Park, the group is outfitted with bikes, helmets, and gloves before pedaling onto the Coastal Trail. This paved trail winds through forests populated by urban moose and along the silty flats of the Knik Arm shoreline. The first rest point is Point Woronzof, an overlook with panoramic views of the Alaska and Aleutian mountain ranges.
Throughout the leisurely ride your guide provides narration, telling the story of Anchorage from many angles: Historical, cultural, and ecological. After about three hours, the tour wraps up at Anchorage's Westchester Lagoon.
The guided Coastal Cruise Bike Tour covers up to 9.5 miles of Anchorage's Tony Knowles Coastal Trail with stops at Kincaid Park, Point Woronzof, Earthquake Park, and Westchester Lagoon.
