spending my last afternoon in anchorage - tired of driving..

I will be in Anchorage on my own for the last afternoon of my 2 week trip, with a window from noon until dinnertime when my host gets home from work. I've read suggestions about Matanuska glacier and Hatcher pass, but will have driven a lot on this trip so I was thinking a car-free day might be nice - are there bike tours around anchorage or other suggestions (?geo caching ? Ive never done it?) for amusing oneself - I'd like exercise and being outdoors, just preferably not a lengthy drive - I dont know if I'll have a car for the day or not...

Plenty of geocaching options... Just be sure to start with ones that have an easy difficulty rating.

You can rent a bike and ride along the Coastal Trail.

You can rent a bike and bike some or all of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Or if you don't want to bike alone, there are a few tours available: https://alaskatrailguides.com/half-day

You can catch a shuttle bus from downtown to Flat Top Mountain for a hike.
