Seward Area Pavement Rides

Exit Glacier Road (AKA Herman Leir Road): Smooth pavement on a fairly flat road winds along Rez River and leads to, duh, Exit Glacier at Kenai Fjords National Park. Perfect place and distance to test out an E-Bike, about 17 miles round trip from the bike shop.

Nash Road Nice pavement, low traffic road with a nice hill climb at mile 2. Beautiful views, ends at a beach.

The Highway That's the Seward Highway of course. Nice wide shoulder and a great big climb 7 miles out of town, but heavier traffic than other roads. Roadies will love it until Mile 17 where it gets narrow and constructiony.

The Bike Path: Starting at the Alaska Sealife Center and running through town out the highway to Bear Lake Road at Mile 7ish. Many people rent bikes to check out the fish weir on Bear Lake Road. Salmon gather in the creek there and bears come to snack.

Seward Area Mt. Bike Trails

-Lost Lake Trail: Single track trail, out and back, 7 miles to the lake, longer riding options available. Riding distance from the shop.

My thoughts on riding Lost Lake to Kenai Lake via Primrose Trail (Not as an out-and-back)

-Resurrection River Trail (AKA Rez River)

-The Iditarod

(AKA Long Lake Trail, AKA Graying Lake Trail, AKA Alaska Long Trail, AKA Meridian Lake)

-Johnson Pass Trail

-Devils Creek Trail (AKA Devils Pass)

-Resurrection Pass Trail (Different than Rez River Trail)

-Crecent Lake Trail

-Carter Lake Trail
