Holding a master’s in public administration from the University of Alaska, Charles Clement has spent the last couple of decades working in the healthcare sector. Experienced in executive leadership, he serves as president and CEO of SEARHC. In his free time, Charles Clement enjoys staying active through such activities as biking. Alaska is home to numerous different biking trails that feature outstanding scenery and varying degrees of difficulty. Below are just a few examples of the state’s top bike trails:

Lost Lake Trail: Winding through seven miles of wilderness, Lost Lake Trail is an intermediate trail with about 1,800 feet of climbing. Dotted with rocks and roots, the stretch reaches its summit after about six miles and the remaining mile can often be enjoyable for bikers. However, the area is home to bears, so bikers should exercise caution.

– Glenn Highway Trail: A relatively uncrowded trail, the Glenn Highway Trail near Anchorage consists of smooth asphalt and only a slight uphill grade. It is perfect for bikers of all skill levels and ages and can easily stretch more than 40 miles, depending on the specific path riders take. The official trailhead is at David Park in Mountain View.

– Kepler-Bradley Lakes State Park: Combining singletrack, doubletrack cross-country, and beautiful lakes and fields, Kepler-Bradley Lakes State Park is a great place for beginning bikers. There are several different singletrack trails running through the 350-acre park. However, most of them have relaxed terrain and low elevations.
