Circling Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula

Provided By: 

A favorite among residents and visitors alike is the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail that begins in the heart of downtown Anchorage and extends 11 miles along the coast. Scenic views of several mountains and Cook Inlet makes this a breathtaking walk, and the paved, level trail makes it enjoyable for people of all ages and abilities.

Begin your drive down the Seward Highway, a designated All-American Road, but include time to stop along the way. Explore the many trailheads that take you into the mountains surrounding Anchorage. Local favorites include Bicentennial Park and Flattop Mountain. Stop at Potter Marsh to observe wildlife; common sightings include Canada geese, mallards and northern pintails that flock to the protected area. Heading south you’ll pass the Beluga Point Interpretive Site, which offers excellent whale-watching opportunities, and then on past the Indian Valley Mine.

The small community of Girdwood is home to the famous Alyeska Resort. In the winter, ski Alyeska’s 1,000 acres of terrain. In the summer, take a seven-minute tram ride for panoramic views. Girdwood began as a gold-mining town and you can still try your luck with a gold pan at Crow Creek Mine.

Further down the road, turn on Portage Valley Road and drive 5 miles to the Begich Boggs Visitor Center to learn about glaciers and Chugach National Forest. Take a ride on Portage Lake to see icebergs and the face of Portage Glacier. Hikers can climb on nearby Byron Glacier.

You will be driving along the Turnagain Arm, an extension of Cook Inlet carved out by ice-age glaciers. The Chugach Mountains border the roadway on your left, and across the inlet, the Kenai Mountains rise against the sky. You’re likely to see Dall sheep on the mountainsides and bald eagles soaring overhead. At the intersection of the Sterling Highway, head west to Kenai, Soldotna and Homer, or you can take a quick trip to the beautiful town of Seward nestled on the blue waters of Resurrection Bay.

In Seward, visit the Alaska SeaLife Center. Stop for halibut-and-chips at Thorns Showcase Lounge, where you can ogle the collection of Jim Beam bottles on lighted shelves along the walls, and stop at Stylin’ Stitches to choose a shirt and an embroidered patch that will be sewn on while you wait.

Aboard cruise ships like Major Marine Tours’ Star of the Northwest, venture into Kenai (keen-eye) Fjords National Park for a look at Exit Glacier, one of the state’s most accessible glaciers by foot. A half-mile trail leads you to 150-foot blue ice spires. Adventurous hikers can climb another 3.5 miles up the trail to the Harding Icefield, the largest icefield entirely within the United States.

Return north from Seward to the intersection of the Sterling Highway and turn left (west). The first town you come to on the Sterling Highway is Cooper Landing. Add rafting or drift boating to your list of activities as you pass through the small community. This stretch of road parallels the famed crystal-blue Kenai River. At ...
