Mountain Biking the Kenai Peninsula

The Kenai Peninsula offers outstanding opportunities for mountain bikers seeking thigh-busting challenges amid extraordinary scenery. Crescent Creek Trail (at Mile 44.9 of Sterling Highway; drive 3 miles to the trailhead at end of gravel road); Devil's Pass (at Mile 39.5 of Seward Highway); Johnson Pass (at Miles 32.6 and 63.7 of Seward Highway); and the Resurrection trail systems offer miles of riding for a wide range of expertise. Cyclists here are subject to highly fickle mountain weather patterns. But remember that you're never really alone in wild Alaska: be sure to bring along bear spray and bug dope (repellent).
