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.
