The Easy Trail In Alaska That Will Take You To The Top Of The World

Looking for an easy trail with the best view in Alaska? The Anchorage Overlook Trail (sometimes known as the Glen Alps Overlook Trail) is a perfect option. With shuttles running from downtown Anchorage if you need, this is a great morning or afternoon excursion for the whole family. It is family friendly, handicapped accessible, and even has some of the cleanest outhouses in Alaska.
