|About these ratings|
Kincaid Park is the perfect place for when you need an escape from city life without having to actually leave Anchorage. Overlooking Cook Inlet from the city's southwest corner, this 1,500-acre park is home to dozens of hiking, biking and cross-country ski trails, gardens and even some of Alaska's favorite furry friends like moose, fox and porcupines. With so much to offer, this park is a perfect urban escape for both a wilderness adventure and a leisurely day outdoors. As one TripAdvisor user puts it: "The views were spectacular and the trails always seemed to be well groomed. I am not a cross-country skier, but this park with all its trails was so beautiful, it made me want to give it a try."
Kincaid Park is open to nature lovers every day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is reached by both Raspberry Road and the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. And the best part: You don’t have to pay to play. For more information, visit Anchorage’s Parks and Recreation website.
