This 4.3-mile loop trail is just one of several trails in Kincaid Park, along the coast of Anchorage. Kincaid Park is a year-round, family-friendly area popular for cross-country skiing, mountain biking, and running. The park has Olympic level cross-country ski trails, soccer fields, a playground and picnic area, as well as a frolf course. Visitors to the park can often see moose, bald eagles, and occasionally black bear. Overlooking Cook Inlet, the park chalet and sledding hill are often busy with year-round community events.
Conditions: The trail can become muddy after a lot of rain, so bring the appropriate gear for the weather and time of year.
Dogs: Welcome, on a leash.
Access & Parking: The park can be reached by car or bike from Raspberry Road, with several parking areas including one at the chalet/stadium, Little Campbell Lake, and off Jodhpur Road. The trails of Kincaid Park can be reached by bike from the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail.
As with all trails in Alaska, hikers should be prepared, dress in layers, and bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, a map of the area, bear spray, and a well-charged cell phone.
