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.

  • What's a fat bike and why should I experience it?

  • Great for every level of rider from the beginner mountain biker to more experienced. Designed to roll easily over small obstacles and float over gravel, dirt, and mud providing a more stable ride.

Skills & Fitness

  • Mountain Biking Skills
  • Beginner – I know how to ride a bike, shift gears, and use hand breaks. I can control my speed and direction on the pavement, however, I am new to mountain biking and have never ridden dirt trails or ride off-road once or twice a year.
  • Novice – I have some experience riding dirt trails or off-road terrain and have been mountain biking several times. I can control my bike speed and direction on smooth trails and moderately uneven terrain, but often walk my bike when things get rooty. I am able to anticipate the terrain and know when to shift gears some of the time.
  • Intermediate – I have been mountain biking for at least 2 years and ride regularly. I am able to control my speed and direction on moderately steep and technical singletrack trails which may include tight trees, mud, loose rocks, and sand. I can roll over small obstacles but I don’t take my wheels off the ground. I can anticipate the terrain and know when to shift gears.
  • Advanced – I am a strong rider who has been mountain biking for 5 or more years. I am comfortable climbing and descending steep, technical and exposed terrain that includes rocks, tree roots, primitive trail, tight switchbacks, short drops, and jumps.
  • Fitness
  • Leisurely: My main source of exercise is walking or light workouts once or twice a week. I enjoy getting outside and walking or light activity. I prefer mostly flat or downhill terrain. Short, small hill climbs are doable, but less is ok with me. (Less than 200 feet of climbing)
  • Recreational: Weekend warrior or commute to work or do spin classes in the gym, I enjoy an active lifestyle, working out 2 to 3 times a week with an occasional physical challenge. I enjoy gentle rolling terrain and feel great after reaching the top of a hill climb. (Less than 500 feet of climbing)
  • Active: Fitness is central to my life. I ride my bike regularly weekly (spin classes count!) or I work out 4 to 5 times a week physically challenging myself with almost every workout. I enjoy hills and like getting some speed. (Less than 1,000 feet of climbing)
  • Avid: Fitness is my life and everything I do revolves around my workouts and nutrition. I ride my bike an average of 100 miles per week and enjoy a fast pace for an extended time. I love to train, improve, and maybe even race my friends. I enjoy all-terrain!
