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.

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.
