Activity Details
Go above and beyond Anchorage and get into the mountains with a local leading the way. Drive 30 minutes to the the Flattop Scenic Overlook in Glen Alps. Get acquainted with the landscape as you are now 2,000 feet up looking over Anchorage and the Cook Inlet. From the viewpoint, your guide will point out points of interest that can be see from here. Your guide will fit you for a bike and helmet, then the group will head into the mountains. You will be on a wide double track trail that is dirt and gravel. The fat tire bikes are mountain bikes with 5 inch tires; making them very stable with a lot of cushion and fun to ride.

The valley floor is home to moose, bears, ptarmigan and the mountains are home to Dall sheep and wolves. Learn the natural and human history of the Chugach Mountains along the way. Five miles up valley you have left the city and most people behind. Rest next to a small mountain lake while listening to the ground squirrels and birds chips away before heading back.
