Anchorage Trails Make the Moose Loop

Anchorage has one of the best urban trail systems in the United States, with hundreds of miles of paved and multi-use trails connecting our city. Our four main multi-use trails—the Lanie Fleischer Chester Creek Trail, the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, the Campbell Creek Trail, and the Ship Creek Trail—can be connected to each other to form a 32-mile bike loop, an almost-complete urban greenway that is, when viewed on a map, in the shape of a moose! Read What you can learn about Anchorage by biking 32 miles on the new ‘Moose Loop’ by Michelle Theriault Boots, of the Anchorage Daily News as you plan your own journey. Join us in celebrating our trail system the last week of September at the Moose Loop Trail Challenge.

The urban paved trails connect to mountain bike trails in Chugach State Park, an alpine tundra with mountains ranging from 2,000 ft to 8,000 ft in elevation. The Mountains to Sea route links existing trails in a traverse from Chugach State Park’s new Hemlock Burn singletrack trail down through parks and paths, ending at the sea in downtown Anchorage. This video trail guide, developed in partnership with Alaska State Parks, provides details for this new half-day Mountains to Sea adventure.
