What is a fat bike and why should you experience it?
- A fat bike is a bike that has tires that are 3.8 inches or wider.

In just 20 minutes you will be above Anchorage at the entrance to Chugach State Park, our backyard. With 495,000 acres of forests, lakes, mountains and valleys all connected by trails, there is plenty to see. The Starting point of this bike ride is the Glen Alps Trailhead, about 2,000 feet above Anchorage. Before heading into the mountains take in the unobstructed views of the city, the Alaska Range including Denali, Aleutian Islands and Cook Inlet.
The bike path is a wide double track that is packed dirt and gravel. This out and back ride will take you along the Glen Alps Valley. With peaks above you, a Campbell Creek below and wildlife waiting to be spotted!
Why 4 hours for 12 miles? There is so much to see! We want to allow time for everyone to be able to enjoy and take in the area, take pictures, watch any wildlife we are able to, have lunch on the edge of a mountain lake and bike all 12 miles. The trail gradually gains elevation until you reach the pass 6 miles up valley, overall there is about 900 feet of elevation gain over 6 miles.
