We just did this one. Went up to the 4 mile stop and went back. Would have liked to go all the way at least once but we couldn't take it lol. It was great but not very pretty sometimes from the fire.

We took the path to the right and later found out it was the hardest route to take. We went to the 4.5 mile mark so ended up doing 9 miles with two little ones. It was super muddy still but was great! We will go back but will take the other route this time since it's supposed to be the easier route.

We did this trail a week ago and it is just before break up. Lots of snow on the trail still but it was packed down good until the split for the three mile and the tors. Then it was deep. Would be a great cross country ski or snowshoe trail as well. Can't wait til summer to do the whole trail and some back country camping with our daughter. It's a good place for a starter cause your not too far out there that in an Emergancy someone can't go for help.

I completed the 3 mile loop (which was closer to 2 miles). This was a nice easy hike and should be easy enough for small kids. Bug spray is a must in the warm weather! I hope to complete the full 15 mile loop soon.

This is one of my favorite trails to hike in the Fairbanks area. This trail winds through 15 miles of Alaska wilderness. The trail takes you along streams, through spruce and birch, along ridgelines with beautiful panoramic views, and most notably the giant granite rocks known as "Tors". The "tors" are what make this hike worth the trip. Seen on the horizon they do not look very big but once among them you can truly appreciate their size. If you are a rock climber then you have come to the right place. The only bad part is the closest "tor" is about 7 miles from the trailhead. At any rate this is a great trail for both hikers and climbers in the summer and snowshoer's and skiers in the winter.
