About Us

Alaska Trail Guides is locally owned and operated in Anchorage. Nestled at the base of the Chugach Mountains, wrapped by Cook Inlet, Anchorage is as unique and dynamic as the state in which it belongs. Anchorage is the gateway to Southcentral Alaska and the Interior, a playground so vast it stretches from the temperate rain forest of Kenai National Forest to the majestic timelessness of Denali. Alaska Trail Guides provides the opportunity to explore these areas with a local, knowledgeable guide. Our passion is about sharing our great state with you, providing technical know-how and natural history. 

At Alaska Trail Guides we are your travel concierges, starting from when you make your first inquiry. Our team is driven to provide exceptional customer service and local knowledge so you can feel confident and comfortable planning your Alaska dream vacation. Your guide’s personal experience and enthusiasm enable them to blend instruction with interpretive knowledge to provide an extraordinary experience during our anchorage mountain bike tours. Enjoy the moment, and leave the logistics to us!
