Campbell Creek Greenbelt Description

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.

Campbell Creek Greenbelt Reviews

A nice little shaded trail following the meandering creek. I made a giant loop by taking the Chester Creek trail to the Tony Knowles trail and then did some on road riding to hitch up to Campbell creek. About 30 miles total. Only minor issue was that you had to cross a major road toward the end.

My first visit to Alaska and my first trail. I found this trail amazing, not real hard to bike or walk, wild life, beautiful creek, great sitting areas and a cozy lake as my nephew say's to sit and relax by. Everyone on the trail was friendly from the human to the dog ¿¿.

Very great experience! Love it!
