Ocean views, mountains, and moose! 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.
Ellie was our guide and she was absolutely exceptional!!! She helped us navigate and learn the E-bikes and took us on trails that catered to our skill level!! She also... read more took the time to help us get some amazing pictures!! We felt so comfortable and taken care of!! We loved her so much!! Cannot recommend a better guide!! She is so knowledgeable about Alaska and gave us so much helpful information for the rest of our stay! If you book this tour, ask for Ellie!!!
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!
We have two teenagers one with Down syndrome. We were all able to enjoy this trail ride. The trail is paved (absolutely no traffic it’s paved through woods)... read more and flat and goes a long way (we did not get through half of it) You ride as far as you like and then head back. We saw a moose and a mooseling too. Guides handle all bikes and equipment so it was easy and very doable for any level of biker!! Huge thanks to Frankie and Elie for making this happen for our family!
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!
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.
Our family had such a good ride with Elly @ Alaska Trail Guides. The ride itself was beautiful, the Chugach State Park is gorgeous. The bikes are so... read more fun to ride. We spotted a moose eating right beside the trail, it was very cool! Elly was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable about the area and patient when we fell just a little behind. She was also prepared with water and snacks. Great ride for families and we highly recommend it!
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.
