Description: Lanie Fleischer Chester Creek Trail parallels Chester Creek from Westchester Lagoon 4 miles East-By-South to Goose Lake. This tour starts at Westchester Lagoon and ends at Goose Lake. The trail is marked by mileposts every 1/2 mile, beginning at Westchester Lagoon, increasing as you travel East-By-South. The trail is illuminated by lamps at night. The trail has a few minor grades; however, it is well suited to the novice user. Chester Creek flows West-By-North so traveling East-By-South is generally more strenuous.

Connections: Campbell Creek Trail is accessible via a Trail Connection. Turn left past Northern Lights Blvd Bridge. Campbell Creek Trail is 2.25 miles away. The trail adjacent to the East Shore of Goose Lake leads to University of Alaska, Anchorage and Alaska Pacific University. Chester Creek Trail intersects with the Coastal Trail at Westchester Lagoon.
