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 tour starts at Westchester Lagoon and ventures 9 miles Southwest to Kincaid Park. This section of trail is marked by mileposts every 1/2 mile, beginning at Westchester Lagoon, increasing as you travel Southwest. The trail becomes more remote as you travel Southwest of Milepost 4. The trail skirts Anchorage Airport, between Mileposts 3 and 8, and low flying aircraft are frequently seen. There are steep grades on the approaches to Earthquake Park, Pt Woronzof and Kincaid Park. The other section of the Coastal Trail is presented separately under Coastal North.

Connections: From the Southwest Trailhead, paved paths adjacent to Kincaid Park Access Rd, Raspberry Rd, Sand Lake Rd and West Dimond Blvd lead to the Southwest Trailhead of Campbell Creek Trail at West Dimond Blvd and Northwood Dr. The Coastal Trail intersects with Chester Creek Trail at Westchester Lagoon.
