It was a very short hike or walk around ponds full of very interesting migratory birds that visit the area. If you like watching wildlife this is a great place to visit.

Right in Fairbanks, Creamer’s Field is a good place to see the lights. We were able to see them with a 4 rating between 1:30 and 2am. If you don’t see activity at one part of he parking off College, try the opposite end - that’s where we saw them. And it was free!

We found this place by chance and enjoyed walking the nature trails. Saw several different birds and very peaceful area. Would recommend stopping here if in the area.

This was a great place to take a mile+ hike. You are never really far from your car but it feels like another world. The frozen bent snow heavy trees against the frail daylight was beautiful. We even spotted a moose who quickly scurried away.

We were there to pass some time before we flew out that evening. Started talking to Bud and he gave us a tour! Very educational and beautiful! We will visit again when back in Fairbanks!
