Nice walk

Wear bug spray, walking shoes, read signs along the path & telephoto lens would be great from the viewing platforms.

Maybe it was the wrong time of the year,the area had an early snow and possibly it sent the wildlife off to start their winter preparations. It was a beautiful walk around the lake, but it was cold and we did'nt see a single animal or even a bird !

We stayed at the Wedgewood Resort while in Fairbanks and this little treasure is on the grounds. Although we only had limited time there, it was such a pleasure to be able to walk out of your hotel room and into such a peaceful place, full of interesting birds, squirrels and nature--- really a lovely place to go!

Like the fountainhead auto museum, this attraction was adjacent to the place we stayed. Like the auto museum, this attraction is a gift to whoever visits it.

Very nice stroll around a large reserve with various birds and other wild life. The trail is easy for anyone to walk, the pace is peaceful or whatever you want to make it.

Well maintained trails and lake. Saw a beaver dam by the lake. Nice scenery and woods are nice. WARNING - mosquitoes are in plenty. this was one place we forgot our bug spray and we ended up donating blood to the wrong species.

Meets up with creamers field to give you more hiking options, Leads out from the Wedgewood Resort. Benches available in the summer, and great for snowshoeing in the winter.

A really great walk around the area including a lake/pond full of waterfowl. Good way to spend an afternoon walk.
