  • Nice stop. Hoping to see wildlife but it was nothing but wind. Not much else to see or do. Take pics and leave!  more »
  • The park is great. Saw a black bear and some moose. Dall's sheep too. It's a great and peaceful place to spend some time.  more »

  • Wonderful assortment of trails to hike/bike for all skill levels. Trails are also very breath taking and peaceful. Some are more popular than others, but I don't believe any of them would be a mistake to try out. If you don't believe just go for yourself.
  • Gorgeous views and multiple wildlife sightings. In addition to the awe-inspiring scenic views around every turn, we saw 2 bears and 2 moose within the first hour.
  • Great challenging trail! Great views. If you go all the be prepared to have 2-3 mile walk back to the parking lot.
  • There are so many mountains and trails to explore. Views are spectacular. The downside? Bugs galore.
  • Spectacular views of the city, the bay and various mountain ranges. Excellent variety of trails and hiking options.

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.
