Alaska walking and biking paths

April 14, 2010

One of the really great things about most towns/cities in Alaska is the presence of paved paths along the sides of the roads. These paths are excellent places to walk, ride a bike, skateboard, whatever.

I took the picture below while walking on a path today here in Wasilla. I was standing on the bike/walking path (the paved area on the right), while the larger paved area on the left is a normal two-way street. Every other town I've been in also has these paths by the sides of the roads. Even Anchorage has them in some areas.

Off to the right you can see dark tracks in the dirt. This area is used by people who have snowmobiles, ATVs, and dirt bikes.

People in Alaska truly do love the great outdoors, and paths like these for bikes, walking, and riding are really great ways to get some fresh air.
