  • This is a nice place in Fairbanks to take a walk along trails. It is a flat set of trails. You walk through the forest & around Wander Lake. The trails are wheelchair accessible. Your access point is from Wedgewood Resort. There is a trail map provided which is very easy to follow with key places in the Sanctuary & the adjacent Wedgewood Resort clearly marked. You can complete the easy walk in 30-60 minutes. This is a good place to kill some time before flying out of Fairbanks.
  • Nice area to walk in the summer. If you want a place to ski or snowshoe, I'm sure it's great for that in the winter too. Hooks into other trails in the larger Creamer's Field network, so the trails can go a very long ways. If you aren't careful you can go several miles without realizing it.
  • Great laid back place to take a walk or just watch the birds. Many trails through the trees. Dogs on leashes are welcome. Bring your bug dope!
  • Had never been here before but it's a nice little get-away and is really peaceful.
  • A great little nature walk.
