Tony Knowles Coastal Trail

9401 Raspberry Rd, Anchorage, AK 99502, USA

The 18-kilometer Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is one of the state’s most popular thanks to its scenic views. The trail begins in downtown Anchorage at the west end of Second Avenue and hugs the shoreline past Elderberry Park and Westchester Lagoon, includes a wooden bridge trek over a marsh and a climb through Earthquake Park, around Point Woronzof, to end at Point Campbell in Kincaid Park. Many walk, run or rent a bike. Along the way you may find yourself sharing the trail with a moose, spot a bald eagle soaring above or a whale breaching along Cook Inlet.
