Glenn Highway Trail Description

This is an asphalt paved multi-use trail running south from Birchwood Loop Road in Chugiak, through Eagle River and past Fort Richardson until it ends by Boniface Parkway. 

It is a mostly flat trail paralleling the Glenn Highway with scenic views of the Chugach Mountains to the east and of the water as it crosses Ship Creek. The trail passes a number of schools, sites of interest, and parks, including Beach Lake Park, Chugach State Park, Cottonwood Park, and the Alaska Native Heritage Center. Restrooms are available near the trail at Commons Park (12171 Regency Dr) in Eagle River. Used frequently by bikers, walkers and runners, this 17.5-mile long trail provides opportunities for both recreation and commuting. 

Eventually, the trail will connect via additional Anchorage paths with the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail to the east and south. Other nearby trails include the Eagle River Road Multi-Use Path and the Ship Creek Trail. While passing through the Eagle River community, the Glenn Highway Trail connects with the Eagle River Road Multi-Use Path.
