Winter in Anchorage has been absolutely magical!  When the weather cooperates, there are no shortage of activities.  This and last winter has been unusually warm and keeping active during thawing/re-freezing temperatures can be challenging.  Mud, ice, and slushy snow has limited my fat biking and skiing.  Instead of staying indoors, I’ve opted for winter hiking.  Here are few areas in and around Anchorage which are great winter hikes:

Rabbit Lake

Ships Pass

Trails in Eagle River Nature Center


Nancy Lakes

Eagle and Symphony Lakes

Near Point

Bear Mountain

Bird Creek

Williwaw Lakes


South Fork

Winner Creek

I will add to this list as I learn about more winter hiking locations.

When hiking in the Winter, please take safety into consideration.  There is a great article from Alaska Magazine:
