View Point Trail

Difficulty

Easy

The View Point Trail is also known as the Tour of Anchorage Trail. It offers gentle terrain and a touch of solitude for those looking for an easy trail not far from the city. Because the Campbell Tract is adjacent to the Chugach National Forest it offers a direct corridor for animals moving in and out of the Anchorage bowl so keep an eye out for moose with their young in the spring and be especially mindful of bears throughout the spring and summer. When the bears come out of hibernation they can sometimes be a little edgy and as the summer progresses salmon begin spawning in the creek at the trailhead, which acts as a natural bear magnet.
