A bit steep at times, but ok for most folks of reasonable fitness. Nice views of the river. Easy to find the trailhead. Outhouse at the trailhead was tidy and had toilet paper!

We took the 3 1/2 mile hike here and it was an awesome hike for a novice hiker. Was challenging but well worth the beautiful views. Definitely not crowded. This is a great place for a day hike.

Daughter stationed at Fort Wainwright took us here while we were visiting here this past July. Could not believe the scenery it produced for just $5 vehicle fee. By far the best value near Fairbanks Alaska for hiking.

We decided to walk this trail as it looked to be about about the right time and distance. It is a 3.5 mile loop trail leading up to Angel rocks. These are spectacular granite outcrops or referred to as Tors in the UK. You will...More

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
