ANC Summer Snapshots
1. Earthquake Park
This scenic park west of downtown honors the deadly 1964 Good Friday Earthquake that reshaped the city and its surrounding landscape. The hilly, wooded area offers the quintessential view of the Anchorage city skyline from a few different clear vantage points. The silhouette of Sleeping Lady “Mount Susitna” can be clearly seen. Moose frequent the area so be vigilant.
2. Point Woronzof
Drive just a couple of miles past Earthquake Park (continuing on Northern Lights) and you’ll reach a more remote, beach access spot. Point Woronzoff offers another Westerly scenic view of Anchorage from a serene beach access point. Many outdoor enthusiasts, tourists, couples and other visitors enjoy watching the planes fly right overhead.
3. Glen Alps Trailhead
Not more than a 15 minute drive outside of Anchorage, the Glen Alps Trailhead provides a full panoramic view of the city. It is the starting point for some of Anchorage’s top hikes including Flat Top Mountain. The beauty of surrounding mountain ranges, mud flats and seeing all of the city sprawled out 1,300 miles below is truly unparalleled.
