Knik Valley is the hidden gem right outside Anchorage. If you don’t have time for the full day experience, this is a great way to get a taste of Alaskan off-roading. Riding is always spectacular in this scenic valley and even on short tours, this amazing trail covers lots of terrain. You’ll see Knik Glacier in the distance if the weather is clear, get right up close to Knik River at the base of Pioneer Peak, cross Jim Creek, and ride over dry riverbeds making your way to Friday Creek, eventually arriving at the halfway lookout. The trail itself is well-defined yet rugged. You'll cross streams and other obstacles as our expert guides show you the way.
Whether you're a thrill-seeker looking for adventure or a family group looking for a half-day outing, Knik will deliver. The vast trail system here allows us to cater the experience to you and your current off-roading skill level.
As with all of our trails… be prepared! Dress warm, wear clothes you don't mind getting muddy and wear multiple layers (no open-toed shoes, rainboots are preferred). Helmets, goggles and gloves will be provided but feel free to bring your own.
When scheduling, please let us know and allow additional time if you need to make a flight or other scheduled connection. We will be traveling 12 miles away from civilization and the exact return time is dependent on trail conditions.
Shuttle service to and from the downtown Anchorage Visitor Information Center is available for groups of 4 or more during the summer season (mid-May through mid-September). Traveling solo or as a duo? Give us a call for shuttle availability!
