If you want adventure in a wild place, then riding on the Kenai Peninsula is exactly where you should go. Big mountains, beautiful vistas, and great trails await.

Local Info

There are multiple days of riding available. Start with Crescent Lake for a sample of what's available on the Kenai. For long rides, Devil's to Resurrection or Upper Russian Lake will more than fit the bill.

And for the most beautiful ride you might ever do, check out Lost Lake.

Food & Drink

Cooper Landing and Seward will have food, beverages and gas. There's not much in between.

After the Ride: Local Favorites

Gwin's Lodge and Restaurant Salmon chowder was great. Nachos were huge!

Camping & Lodging

Cooper Landing and Seward provide lodging options.

Chugach National Forest has a host of campgrounds and cabins, accessible by car and bike. The cabin on the Upper Russian Lake ride is especially scenic. Click here for detailed information.

Visiting Tips

In summer, it's best to ride before the vegetation grows tall and makes the trails hard to navigate.

Other Activities

Fishing is a very popular activity on the Kenai Peninsula. In addition, backpacking, wildlife viewing and scenic driving are a few other things that can be done in the area.

Minor Issues
Update
Some Mud - Extremely overgrown and loads of Pushki last couple miles toward lake as one may expect for this time of year. Trail crews were on trail earlier in the season, but still very overgrown at top. Bottom is all clear and super fun. Despite overgrowth, I had a blast.
