Didn't have a chance to walk the trails as it was pretty cold, but the scenery from that area was excellent. There are some signboards etc about the area but we went with a tour so the information was provided by the guide.

Had no idea of this terrible event before I went to Anchorage. The view of earth’s power revealed on this nice quick walk was absolutely staggering. An easy 30 minute must do in Anchorage.

We had just been to the earthquake museum with our tour guide from Alaska's Finest Tours. We were able to walk though it. A must see.

The best way to reach it is on the non-motorized trail along Cook Inlet a few miles from downtown. The interpretive signs document the devastating Good Friday earthquake causing the entire shoreline to drop drastically.

Stop by if you are close but don’t make a special effort to see it. Tiny loop with interesting billboards.
