Stopped by to take in the views of all the mountains, water nearby, kids on the sledding hill, cross-country skiers... expect the lodge area is probably hopping during busier times of day / year. We had a nice mellow visit, enjoying the sun and the snow.

I absolutely love this park! This was the first place, upon moving to Alaska, that I saw my first moose. It was about 20 feet away. There was no other place in Alaska that I would take visiting friends and family to go, if I wanted to make sure they saw wildlife. From moose to eagles, I think I only... More

This by far was the best place to see moose! You have to go towards the evening when the moose are more active. There were lots of trails to walk on but we went for the moose! Don't worry about driving in this direction because there is fencing along all the roads that are keeping the moose off the road.... More

Love the scenic views ! Saw a few moose - but be careful as the trails are sometimes frozen over ! Would definitely recommend for a solo visit or to explore with friends !!! don't question it -- JUST GO !!

Great to drive through this park in the winter and see the woods covered in snow. If a scenic 30 minutes or so is what you want then Kincaid fits the bill.

I am here in February, and the park is "snowed in." I was grateful that the plows had come through so I could at least drive the park. Gorgeousness!

Kincaid Park is one of the largest parks in Anchorage and is the southern gateway to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail which is a great multi-use trail that connects Kincaid Park to downtown Anchorage and to the UMed district (via the Chester Creek Trail). The many trails are great for hiking, skiing and there are many single-track trails. Enjoy but... More

We went for an hour long walk here looking for moose. We did not see any on the walk but saw two as we were leaving the park laying in the woods next to the road
