A meandering paved trail through the heart of Anchorage connecting Campbell Lake & University Lake.”
— Derek Orling
Family Friendly: 100% paved with only slight elevation changes.
Start at the head of Campbell Lake and enjoy a slow meandering trail past Arctic Blvd and C Street to Taku Lake. Continue on the trail to the Arctic Roadrunner Hamburger Restaurant and the Peanut Farm Bar and Grill.
Next, you'll find yourself at Waldron Pond and Bankcroft Park on your left. Shortly after Waldron Pond, the trail opens to a dead end road which runs into Lake Otis Parkway, a heavily congested roadway. This is the only part of the trail that requires you to cross a road as all others tunnel under the crossroads. You'll be forced to stop here and cross Lake Otis Parkway so be careful and watch for traffic.
Once across, you'll be at the Campbell Creek Park. The next major landmark will be the Chuck Albrecht Softball Complex on your right. Soon after, you'll cross under Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue to reach the end of the trail. University Lake Trail starts where Campbell Creek Trail ends.
