Runner Notes

A beautiful, non-technical loop that is a popular option and for good reason.

Description

This beautiful loop is a 45-minute drive away from Anchorage to the Eagle River Nature Center. It is arguably one of the most scenic and easy trails in the Anchorage area. You'll head along a well-maintained loop that ducks through beautiful forest, over a couple nice wooden bridges, past beaver dams, and along the fast-flowing glacial waters of the Eagle River.

Don't forget to look up at the exposed mountain walls that tower above you only miles from the trail. The loop is a great introduction to the wilderness for novice and younger explorers. There are interpretive signs along the way, and the entire trail is well-marked.

Visitors frequently stop in at the Eagle River Nature Center before heading out on this route to get advice. The Nature Center also offers guided tours along parts of this trail. The trail is flat almost the entire way, but the bridges over the waterways offer views down the valley as does the section along the river.
