Tony Knowles Coastal Trail GPS Track
In downtown Anchorage, you can rent a bike from Pablo’s Bicycle Rentals, at the corner of 5th Avenue and L Street ($12/3 hours or $30 per day, 8 AM - 7 PM, 907-250-2871), or Downtown Bicycle Rental on 4th Avenue between C and D Street ($16/3 hours or $32/day, 8 AM - 8 PM in summer, 907-279-5293), both of which are marked on this map. The Coastal Trail begins in downtown Anchorage at the corner of West 2nd Ave. and H Street and ends at Raspberry Road in Kincaid Park (start and end points are also marked). The track on this map leading from Kincaid Park, east on Raspberry Road, and north on Jewel Lake Road leads bikers on a side loop through the Lake Spenard/Lake Hood float plane airport, which is a lot of fun. Cyclists can then bike north on the Coastal Trail back to downtown Anchorage.
