Wonderful walk any time of the year. I love to go and bring my dogs, meet up with friends and watch the birds arriving in Fairbanks to show us the arrival of spring.

Visited it twice, once in August, once in February. Great both times. Sandhill crane migration in August, hiking through the snow in the Boreal Forest in February.

We (me, kids 17 and 12) rented snow shoes from Beaver Sports, about a mile or so further west on College Road. They were helpful in kitting us out and giving us advice about where to go to walk so we ended up at Creamer's. Park at the Visitors' Center (only open for a few hours at the weekend in winter) and follow any of the several trails. We were warned to be very careful of the moose who by the end of March have begun to calf but are also semi-starving as they have just been eating bark and twigs all winter. Moose can be killers. We therefore decided to give the inviting looking paths through the forest a miss and tramp around the fields, where we reckoned we would be able to see moose a long way off. The walk was lovely, the snow compact on the path, but deep off it and we saw no moose. It's lovely that such locations exist in what is really still the town boundary.

We were here in winter, with no wildlife to speak of, but discovered it's a great place to watch the dog sled Open Championships :-).

Nothing outstanding. Pretty views of the area. Sometimes there are migrating sand hill cranes in the field. Sometimes there are moose. There is a main trail which is a short walk circling an old barn yard. Another longere trail goes off into woods.
