  • We set out to looking for Bears as we were told by locals this would be a good spot. We actually didn't see bears on that hike however others on the trail did. Within minutes of getting started with o...  more »
  • Arrived here after a winter road trip in the Interior, crazy as it sounds. The volunteer on duty told us which trails were best for hiking in the snow and shared animal sitings from his morning walk. ...  more »
  • We drove here from Anchorage one day to hopefully see the tuna and there were suppose to be beavers too. We did see Tuna but they weren't doing much, and never did see the beavers. It was a pretty wal...  more »

  • We went to participate in their Knee High Explorers program. It is a free group geared for Toddlers and Preschoolers. They, plus their adult, get a guided walk with a theme for the week. Our guide stopped to identify several types of trees and tracks for us. We stopped at the yurt and played a quick match game (footprints to their animal), then went on to two look out points and a hollow tree. The trails were a bit icy in spots. They can't do much about that, but they did let us know it would be as well as offer loaner grips for shoes. The guide walked a little fast for a group of kids this age, as a result a second group sort of formed made up of some of the slower kids. The walk/tour is free. Parking is $5 per visit or $50 for a one year pass.
  • Great place! Great hikes! Great people! Watch out for the moose & bear!
  • Beautiful hiking and views. Bring exact change for parking since the office hours are irregular and you'll need to pay via envelope.
  • Nice trails and a cool building with bathrooms and educational material. There are also yurts available for rent on the associated trails.
  • Beautiful area with well maintained trails and viewing platforms. The trails take you through woods, meadows, and wetlands. Plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities. Watch for moose and bears!

Where to stay in Anchorage

Anchorage hotels increase room rates during the height of the tourist season, but you can visit the area economically any time of year by choosing a budget-friendly bed and breakfast or small inn. The city's downtown area contains the priciest rooms; most are offered by chain hotels. You can find less expensive rooms at a cluster of hotels located in Midtown, a largely commercial neighborhood with a good selection of restaurants and shops.
