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.
Tour was bananas! Had a bunch of fun tearing through the Alaskan wilderness on mountain bikes. Best. Day. Ever.
This was an excellent tour. the guides know the area and are happy to share their knowledge. It is an easy ride and very safe for even a novice rider.
Derrick was a knowledgeable guide who took great care of us. He and the van driver, Ellie, made sure that our bikes and helmets fit, had water bottles, and that... read more we knew how to change gears etc. before we took off. The trails were immaculate, safe, and easy to ride (only one somewhat challenging climb). Derrick made sure we were all good with the speed. There were 10 in our group from wide age range. When we saw a smallish black bear on the trail (doesn’t happen often they said), Derrick had us dismount, remain quiet, put the bike between us and the bear, and then he retrieved his bear spray and was ready to use it. He didn’t need to. The bear calmly meandered over the ridge. Besides that excitement, Derrick stopped frequently to explain about the history, geography, flora and fauna of the area. At the end, after about 9.5 miles, Ellie was there with the van, a snack, and more water. Great ride in a beautiful setting!
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!!
Challenging but rewarding, this bike ride takes you through some beautiful trails in Chugach State Park. Our guide was very knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating during the tougher parts of the... read more trail. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a brief tour of the park!
Frankie and Elly took me on a Kincaid Park adventure, where we did a little single track, got a little muddy and even saw a moose. Everything I wanted in... read more my first biking experience in Alaska. They are fun to be around and knowledgeable of bikes and the area. They will ride at your pace and just want you to have the best bike riding experience. My next trip to Alaska, I plan to book the glacier bike riding tour. I can’t wait.
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!
Had a great time exploring the Chugach State Park on this bike ride. The pacing was perfect for my family, the scenery was beautiful, and having lunch at the top... read more of the Alyeska tram line was a great reward for our efforts. Elly and Frankie were very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
