  • We loved and utilized Birch Hill every winter. Great place to spend any extra time one had and get onto the slopes and hills. Fun. Affordable. Definitely a Fort Wainwright/Fairbanks experience. I also enjoyed parties and weddings at their facilities. Great place.
  • Best maintained cross country ski trails that I have been on. UAF would be a close second.
  • Well maintained trails and clean facilities if youre there for a run, a hike, or frisbee golf (or skiing if it's winter).
  • World class Cross country skiing trails. From beginner to World Cup level! Nice lodge and Ski Hut with restrooms and changing rooms. Trails maintained by the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks. Donations for use highly recommended but not required.
  • Great clean place to run. Ski. Disc golf. Although trails don't open of snow until near june.
