Trail Map

Description: Tony Knowles Coastal Trail hugs the coastline of Cook Inlet from 2nd Ave downtown Anchorage 10 1/3 miles Southwest to Kincaid Park. This roundtrip tour starts at Westchester Lagoon, ventures Northeast to 2nd Ave and E St, then, returns to Westchester Lagoon. This section of the trail is 1 1/3 miles long and is not marked by mileposts. The trail has a few minor grades; however, it is well suited to the novice user. The other section of the Coastal Trail is presented separately under Coastal South.

Connections: To access Ship Creek Trail from the Northeast Trailhead, take 2nd Ave to Christensen Dr to 1st Ave to North C St. The Coastal Trail intersects with Chester Creek Trail at Westchester Lagoon. Click the map thumbnail for a Trail Map.
