Biking Anchorage's Chester Creek Trail

Anchorage, Alaska's Chester Creek Trail branches from the Coastal Trail and follows Chester Creek, passing through several parks and forested areas, then circles around Goose Lake to the campuses of the University of Alaska -- Anchorage and Alaska Pacific University, around Northern Lights Boulevard, and UAA Drive.

The trail crosses the creek several times and the forest areas are home to a number of deer which I saw. There was quite a bit of traffic on the trail the day I biked it, and other than the expected frost heaves, the surface was in good condition.

Notice the lights illuminating the path! You don't see that on many municipal trails, but I guess with so many hours of winter darkness, it is to be expected.
