  • Love this spot on the coastal trail. Decent sized parking lot and access to both paved and unpaved trails. Good place to see moose at dusk. Evidence of historic earthquake is easy to see. On a clear day, there is good views of mountains (including Denali) and Anchorage. At low tide you can walk along the beach. Just be careful around the mud flats, they are dangerous.
  • Miles of trails, trees and mud flats. Best explored on a bicycle. Mid August is bug free. It's not a myth, the tide exceeds 20 feet, walking in the mud flats can be fatal.
  • I didn't know the sobering history and it's all very well explained just off the main path. Worth a visit.
  • 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.
