Local Info

It's not so surprising that Anchorage has plenty of good trails for mountain biking throughout the city. What might surprise you is how much and how diverse the riding can be.

From the ultimate beginner experience on the Campbell Tract to cross-country flow at Hillside Park to some new school gravity at Kincaid Park, Anchorage has one of the best and most diverse municipal trails networks in the US.

With close to 30 miles of trail in the city, it's possible to spend a few days riding and enjoying the natural surrounds of Alaska's biggest city.

Food & Drink

Kaladi Brother Coffee is a mainstay in Anchorage and offers up plenty of delicious coffee drinks.

For hole-in-the-wall pho, look no further than: Pho Lena

Organic and always good any time of day: Middle Way Cafe

Other options: Moose's Tooth Pizza, Glacier Brewing, Midnight Sun Brewery.
