Our most popular tour, our clients say it’s “the best thing to do in Anchorage!” (Trip Advisor) Enjoy beautiful views, learn about Alaska and look for moose! Great for all biking abilities and ages.
Beginning at Kincaid Park, in the forested hills along Cook Inlet, enjoy a leisurely 9.5 mile guided bike ride along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Along the way, your guide will share the natural and human history of Anchorage and the surrounding area. Kincaid Park is one of the largest parks within Anchorage, allowing you to experience the wild side of Alaska’s largest city as this is home to snowshoe hares, bald eagles, black bears, moose and more! There are plenty of opportunities for photos along the way as this bike ride along the coast offers views of five different mountain ranges. In addition to Kincaid Park, we also visit Earthquake Park, where we bike through some of the lasting devastation from the 1964 Earthquake and end at Westchester Lagoon, a waterfowl sanctuary.
* The vehicle meets the group halfway (Point Woronzof); if there is someone in the group who is only up for 5 miles of biking, join the driver guide for a driving tour the rest of the way.
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!
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 :-)
I went to Anchorage off season and Elly was accommodating and out together a great MTB ride for me. She is knowledgeable about the history and wildlife in the area.... read more It was the highlight of my trip. I cannot recommend Alaska Trail Guides enough.
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.
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.
This was a must do adventure for anyone visiting Anchorage....went for a Fall tour with girlfriends and we had a wonderful time. Our tour guide,Elly, was very knowledgeable about Anchorage... read more and the terrain. We did a nine mile tour, we are in our late 60s with limited experience biking. We had no problems at all -it was so much fun.
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!
Tour was bananas! Had a bunch of fun tearing through the Alaskan wilderness on mountain bikes. Best. Day. Ever.
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!
