Went on the Winter Track Walk and had an amazing time. Learned about animal tracks in the snow and then went and found some. Guide was very knowledgeable and the ground and place are beautiful.

We enjoyed many walks in the woods done easily along raised boardwalks and nice clean pathways...nice elevated viewpoints throughout and benches here and there. We were lucky enough to see a moose while walking there...we turned around and gave her her space! Several different "biome" walks. lovely Boreal forest

The two of us had perfect weather with a couple inches of snow and frozen ponds to explore the woods and fields of this vast beautiful area near the center of Fairbanks. Enjoyed a few birds even in winter. The visitor center (open only on Saturdays off season) told us about how thousands of sandhill cranes gather here at the... More

Open field where you can see thousands of different migratory birds. If you're into bird watching this would be a must.

Take in a great walk and enjoy nature. There are many sandhill cranes as well as other birds. There are observation towers and boardwalks to get a really good view.

Wish we would have had more time to walk the trails but the birds were migrating and we enjoyed watching them.
