Conveniently located within Anchorage, the Campbell Tract Loop fits into most any schedule. An easy hike for the entire family, the level and well-maintained trail passes through prime wildlife habitat and along scenic Campbell Creek. It also passes the Campbell Creek Science Center, an outdoor education center that’s visited by thousands of Anchorage school children each year.
The Campbell Tract Loop is an important area connector for other trails, state park and municipal land, and conservation education in the community. The Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM) maintains these 730 acres, which are surrounded by the Chugach Mountains directly to the east and 4,000 acres of the Far
North Bicentennial Park. This trail is an important facet of the BLM’s Campbell Creek Science Center outdoor education programs and the Anchorage School District. The loop trail is one of only sixteen National Recreation Trails in Alaska and is home to many species of wildlife, including bald eagles, owls, snowshoe hares, black and brown bears, moose, lynx, porcupines, coyotes, and salmon.
