Big views on fat tires! “The ride was beautiful. The bikes are so fun to ride. We spotted a moose eating right beside the trail! Great ride for families!” ~ Sightsee538109 TripAdvisor
Spend time like a local, with a local!
In just 25 minutes you’ll be at the entrance to Chugach State Park, 2,000 feet above Anchorage. Your guide will take you into the mountains where you’ll have unobstructed views of the city, the Alaska Range including Denali, Cook Inlet, and the Chugach Mountains. Along the way, your guide will share the natural and human history of Anchorage and the surrounding area.
On your 2-hour mountain bike ride, there are plenty of opportunities for photos along the way on this non-technical, wide doubletrack trail that is packed dirt and gravel. We bike out the valley floor with a gradual incline, making for a fun and fast ride on the way back to the trailhead. The valley is also home to moose, black bear, and Dall sheep, among other wildlife! Make sure to bring your camera.
I highly recommend taking this tour. Ellie was a terrific guide and a very nice and genuine person. The tour was great fun, and relaxing biking through Kincaid Park... read more with the beautiful scenery and the weather was perfect. We made multiple stops throughout the course and Ellie told us stuff about the area. We also got to stop and see a mama moose with her two babies - such a beautiful sight. If you are worried the biking may be too strenuous - don't - it was mostly downhill or flat land. There is only one hill really and you can walk the bike up if you choose. I will definitely do this tour again if i find myself in Anchorage, AK again!!
This tour was excellent. I highly recommend it when in Anchorage. Elly and Frankie were great. They picked us up right next to the Anchorage visitors center and took us... read more to the park. It was a group of 6. My family of 4 and 2 other ladies. The bikes were very nice comfort bikes. The trail was beautiful. We saw 2 moose and 2 bears. Elly led the tour and the pace was casual. Most of the trip is downhill. We stopped several times to see things along the trail. Elly was knowledgeable and friendly.
My wife has not ridden a bike much in the past several years and had no problems.
Overall a great tour.
I cannot recommend Alaska Trail Guides highly enough. I took the Kenai Peninsula tour with Elly and was impressed and delighted throughout. The pre-ride coordination and communication were top notch... read more and the ride itself exceeded expectations. Elly shared tons of knowledge about the greater Anchorage area and provided great company for the ride down the Seward Highway. In fact, she told me about a trail that I hiked the following day for one of the most awe-inspiring experiences of my life. The ride on the Peninsula was breathtaking (in a good way!) for its views and the experience of riding the trail. I am so glad I found this service and truly appreciated the expertise of Elly to allow me a sample of Alaska on two wheels!
Great equipment, wonderful guide, beautiful weather! Elly was a fantastic guide and provided an electric bike for my wife and a regular fat tire for me.
Had a great experience on the Chugach tour with Elly. She was a fantastic guide, would recommend to anyone visiting the area for the first time like myself. Fat tire... read more bikes are a ton of fun, more stable than normal mtn biking, and will still get your heart rate going. Views incredible and even got to see some moose! Coordinating the trip was very easy. Nothing but good things to say.
Really excellent tour! Pretty easy bike ride on a fun route. Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife. I highly recommend this trip, thought it was fantastic :-)
Tour was bananas! Had a bunch of fun tearing through the Alaskan wilderness on mountain bikes. Best. Day. Ever.
This tour was super fun, a good work-out, and informative. My guide, Ellie, was incredibly knowledgable and I really enjoyed spending the afternoon with her. Ellie made sure I had... read more the proper fit on the bike before starting and brought me on a trail that had 800 feet of elevation gain with very little human activity. Those fat tires really helped us clamber over some rocky parts of the trail!! Ellie made sure we stopped to view wildlife and pointed out features such as remnants of glacial activity in the valley. Well worth every penny as I could not have done that on my own!! -- I highly recommend a tour on a fat tire bike with Alaska Trail Guides.
