Situated just minutes from downtown Anchorage on more than 1,500 breathtaking acres of rolling, forested hills, Kincaid Park features nearly 40 miles of easily accessible, well-maintained trails – almost a third of them lit for nighttime strolls. Kincaid Park also plays host to four seasons of biking, hiking, biathlon, triathlon, running, snowshoeing and skiing activities and competitions. Not only that, but Kincaid Park also affords spectacular views of Denali, the Alaska Range, Cook Inlet and the wind turbines of Fire Island. The heartbreakingly beautiful scenery is enough to justify a day spent at Kincaid.
Hitting the scenic 11-mile Coastal Trail is an absolute must if you’re hoping to spot moose and beluga whales. Little Campbell Lake offers ice-fishing in winter and boating and fishing in the summer months. A myriad of wonderful amenities, including soccer fields, volleyball courts, a children’s playground, sledding hill, disc golf course, and conveniently sheltered picnic areas, make Kincaid Park the ideal choice for conscientious travelers looking to combine requisite sight-seeing and wildlife spotting with a little exercise.
