  • This was an interesting self guided walking tour. There was stops along the way with information on how much damage there was to the city of Anchorage after this devastating earthquake. 
  • Totally beautiful area to walk. It is in the woods and might be buggy depending on the time of year so make sure to bring some bug spray just in case. Just about a quarter mile down the trail is a great view of downtown Anchorage.
  • I really recommend renting a bike from the north part of town to this place. Very nice trail and nice views. The earthquake park itself is nice and interesting too.
  • Nice place to enjoy a walk, but don't go on the beach in this area, evidently people get stuck in the sandy mud and can't get out by themselves; the tide then comes in very quickly and it's a race against time to survive. You can often see sea life there, surfers, and even some orca.
  • Nice place to take a long walk with plenty of shade and good views of the water. There are some steep drop-offs not too far from the trail, so it would be smart to keep an eye on adventurous small children. There are a few nice spots to get down to the beach, but sadly there's a fair amount of graffiti to spoil the view a little bit. There's also a little hill at the end of the runway where you can stop and watch jets go over your head only a couple of hundred feet above.
  • Good heavens, the mosquitos! There were huge swarms of them, so many that we turned back before we got too far into the park. What we did see was beautiful, so maybe with some industrial bug repellant it would be nice to try again.
