Great, and popular place to stretch for a hike and some elevation. Mosquito's were out in force but didn't deter us from reaching the top. FYI- this can be a connector hike out to Chena Hot Springs

Haven’t done this since my 20s, will definitely come back with my kids (teens). Remember your bug dope and your water. The top of the rocks has a nice breeze, trail along the river is a bit buggy. Great time outside!

This is a great place for hiking especially if you are looking for something that is only moderately difficult in parts and has some amazing views. It is not to far from Fairbanks. Most people only hike up to the rocks and then back down...More

The trail was well maintained in the winter. It has just snowed the day before but the trail was already groomed the next day. A easy hike and not a time consumer one if you are in a hurry.

There was an easy hike to ‘the angel’ and the views from the top were gorgeous. The trail was family and dog friendly.

This was a pretty tough trail for an inexperienced hiker. It was a little wet when we went, but I don't necessarily think it made it anymor tough than it would normally be in the summer time. The views at the top are breathtaking and...More

We stopped after checking out the Chena Hot Springs. It was well worth it. The hike is scenic the entire way. The big payoff is at the top. The hike could be challenging toward the end. If you go during the summer months remember your...More

One of our family's favorite trails to hike in the Fairbanks area and then go onto Chena Hot Springs. Mosquitos area abundant but hike is full of interesting scenery and travels along a stream before a nice climb. It is fun to picnic among the...More
