The Campbell Creek Greenbelt meanders along Campbell Creek making its way through urban Anchorage among neighborhoods and beautiful city parks. The runs for 7.5 miles between the lake on the university campus north of Tudor Road and the intersection of Diamond Boulevard and Victor Road. There is one broken link in the trail where it meets the Seward Highway (Route 1).
You're likely to see wildlife along the way, including moose, beaver and possibly salmon making their way up the creek in autumn to spawn. There's a viewing platform near Piper Street, which overlooks the confluence of the north and south forks of Campbell Creek.
Parking and Trail Access
You can access the trail Lake Otis Park or the Simonean ball fields off Tudor Road behind the Anchorage Police Station. Access is also behind the public works complex off Tudor Road; look for a trailhead at the back of the lot next to a statute of bear and picnicker.
You can access the trail from the university campus via the lake trail and also at its terminus at Northwood Drive (limited parking). You'll find another parking area off Stormy Place; a short spur leads to the main trail from the lot.
