  • Kincaid Park is a beautiful place. It has lots of open places for playing sports, nice hikes, cross-country skiing paths, and areas for parties and such. I highly recommend going here.
  • Like hills? They've got 'em. A variety of activities are enjoyed at this sprawling park, with two entrances. A 12 mile bike ride on the Tony Knowles Coastal trail from downtown finishes in a steep one mile climb into the park. If you are like me and and like to go in a circle, you'll keep going down Raspberry, take a left on Jewel Lake which connects to Spenard, then left again on Wisconsin and you are well on your way back to town. Always be on the lookout for moose, less common are bears. If you are cycling, courtesy use of the bell is appreciated! Kincaid park hosts a variety of activities year around - skiing, walking, running, single-track, picnicking, etc. - the trails tie into the Anchorage area trail system. Enjoy!
  • Beautiful park. Some wildlife. Lots of ski trails. Good size pavilion.
  • It's Kinkaid. It's awesome. If you haven't been, go. If you have, then you already know. I recommend a Yeti dog.
  • Easy to access and with a nice system of trails. There are hills for children to sled on and a large building to retreat to near the parking lot if need be. When I was there there was a large Nordic skiing meet so one might assume the trails for skiing are significant. Seems popular among the locals.
