Rover's Run 7-8 mile loop

Tucked away on the outskirts of Anchorage is a quiet, serene trail following a meandering stream that rarely sees (human) traffic in the summer months. Come see why travel magazines have rated this trail #4 in the world! http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/worlds-scariest-hikes/5

This will be a loop from the park at Martin Luther King/Elmore intersection, connecting to and going up Rover's Run to Gasline, then back down the service loops. We'll run as a group, so if you plan on breaking off from the group, you might want to bring bear spray.

For any newbies, we tend to run 9-10 minute miles.

    Hi Kenton, I'll be catching a taxi to the meetup, is there a car park area where we will meet up, or is the trail head easy enough to spot. Thanks see you all soon

      If it's where I think it is there is like a little ball field with benches.. Someone might want to confirm that because that's just my best guess

      Yeah parking area is where we will meet up. Trail parallels mlk road to the east. Look for a large group of people holding bear spray in the parking lot haha :-)
