Trail History

The Anchorage Trail is a 2 mile paved path that forms a loop for walking, running, family biking and the observation of nature’s best. It starts in downtown Anchorage and winds through trees, over creeks, and by farm fields. Many local residents walk their dogs and get their exercise on the conveniently located 10 foot wide trail. It is home to a wide variety of bird species, wildflowers, and various other wildlife. Willow Lake is adjacent to the Trail and is home to a swan, geese, and ducks. Evergreen Real Estate has planted and harvested thousands of pumpkins over the years on the Trail and Farm fields. The Amphitheater has hosted scout groups, church services, as well as weddings. Students have attended outdoor studies created by Anchorage Public School. In 2008, the Trail was awarded the National Trails Corporate Award. It is a gift that is an evolving and growing part of the Anchorage community. It promises to leave a legacy for generations to come. The Trail is privately owned, but open to the public. Please see below for Anchorage Trail etiquette. Visit us on our facebook page!

“Beautiful flowers, beautiful lake. Bluebirds & cardinals flit down gently as they land on the reeds. Breeze is gentle on your face. Two fun swings everyone loves. I love this path and so does my family.” -Gracie K. “We enjoy the trail 4-5 days a week. Our dog ‘Callie’ thinks it belongs to him! We also enjoy the wildlife- so many pretty birds – especially Cardinals.” -Marsha and Danny “Leave this earth a better place when you leave this earth.” -Kathy, Gary and our dogs Molly and Maggie

Multi-Use Trail

10 foot wide multi-use trail – a round trip journey on this trail totals 2 miles.
Nature Trail

Nature Trail

The nature trail winds through the wetlands and the wooded area of the Anchorage Trail. It is a little more strenous than the paved area. It also allows walkers the peace and solitude of nature at its best.

Little Goose Creek

A wooden walkway provides unique view of the wetlands area where Little Goose Creek empties into Willow Lake.


The Amphitheater is a small oval set into the hillside above Little Goose Creek. Its seats are large stones and fit in perfectly with the setting. It is used for the occassional wedding or Church service, or as a classroom.

Bird Watching

The Anchorage Trail is home to over 150 species of birds. Evergreen Real Estate works to keep the Trail in a natural state which is conducive to keeping the birds in the area. Many bird-watchers and schools organize field trips to enjoy the variety of local and neotropical migrant birds.
