Tony Knowles Coastal Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Named for former Alaska governor Tony Knowles, who served from 1981 to 1987, the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is one of three greenbelt trails located in Anchorage. Even though the trail spans 11.0 miles each way, it is easily picked up from several points in the city, so you can enjoy any segment and hike as little or much of the trail as you desire.
The trail provides extraordinary views of downtown Anchorage, the Chugach Mountains, Denali (Mount McKinley), Mount Susitna (Sleeping Lady), and Fire Island. In addition to a lot of other trail users, you are very likely to encounter moose on the trail."
