Eagle River Nature Center, Anchorage Reviews
Wow. Just wow. Absolutely gorgeous and you really get a sense of the mountains when you are completely surrounded by them. The stream there is pretty mesmerizing and a good salmon viewing area and the trails are pretty self explanatory to follow. It's easy to get to as the Center is at the end of the main road. Definitely worth the trip and a lot of great spots to pull off and take pictures between the Center and the highway.
Great place to use as a launching point for several different (flat) hikes. The people at the nature center are very friendly and helpful, and there is lots of interesting things to see there. I loved taking pictures of the animal tracks that we saw on our hike, and then comparing them to the rubber molds that they have on display so that we could determine what animals may have left those tracks (wolverine?). Just watch out for cow parsnip; in a few places on the Albert Loop it was encroaching pretty close to the trail.
Be bear-aware! This place is the best. Hiking, sights (surrounded by mountains in a cutout view of the bowl the entire time). You can sit on the Boardwalk viewing deck and stare for 20+ minutes without getting bored. Trails are all amazing. Truly incredible.
Very well maintained trails we take our little kids on. Amazing views from some boardwalks they have constructed. As any where in Alaska take your bear spray.
Great place to go for an easy hike. Some of the trails close during salmon season cause of bears. But a great way to see some really gorgeoues scenery. Entrance is 5 dollars to park
