South of Anchorage and north of Cooper Landing on the Kenai Peninsula, the 10 mile Devils Pass trail is a local favorite where you can occasionally view bear, moose and sheep. The first four miles have steep, uphill grades, slight decline after pass. It is well maintained though may be wet/muddy in places. Snow along trail and at Devils Pass may persist into early summer. The out-and-back route eventually reaches the Resurrection Pass Trail after mountain bike trekking through boreal rain forests.
Trailhead is on west side of Seward Highway, Mile 39. Trail is closed to saddle/packstock from April 1-June 30 and closed to motorized vehicles year-round.
Overall, Devils Pass Trail is the 5th most popular mountain bike trail of all 25 mountain biking rides in Alaska. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Devils Pass Trail including Resurrection Pass Trail System, Primrose - Lost Lake Trail, Johnson Pass Trail and Cresent Lake Trail.
