Mountain Biking Blm Campbell Tract
#21 of 60 mountain bike trails in Alaska
#4,116 in the world
The well-maintained trails of the BLM's 730-acre Campbell Tract Facility are open for non-motorized recreation, from hiking to horseback riding. Bordered on three sides by city parklands-including Far North Bicentennial Park-the tract creates an unbroken connection to the Chugach Mountains to the east. Depending on the season, you may encounter moose, fox, coyote, lynx, black bear, and brown bear. Campbell Creek meanders through the northern part of the tract and provides spawning habitat for rainbows Dolly Varden, silvers, and kings. The tract is also home to the Campbell Creek Science Center, which provides outdoor education programs for people of all ages.
