Nestled in the foothills of Chugach State Park, Anchorage’s Hillside neighborhood and its five main subdivisions – Kempton Hills, Bear Valley, Goldenview, Prominence Point, and Potter Marsh – gives homeowners the secluded feel of living in rural Alaska, yet is still only a short drive away from everything Anchorage has to offer.
Taking advantage of the Alaskan outdoors is as easy as stepping outside your front door. With 280 miles of trails, Chugach State Park is an outdoor playground that offers spectacular views and plenty of trail options suitable for beginners to daredevils. In winter, Hilltop Ski Area and the looped cross-country tracks in Far North Bicentennial Park beckon skiers and snowboarders with their powdery soft hills and trails.
For families with children, the Hillside neighborhood is home to some of Anchorage’s best public schools: O’Malley, Bear Valley, Huffman, and Rabbit Creek Elementary; Goldenview Middle School, and; South Anchorage High School.FOR MORE INFORMATION
