  • This is literally in the backyard of where we were staying. Got the cool opportunity to see a moose and some baby seagulls. The walk is about 1 mile and easy and flat. Signage around the lake to expla...  more »
  • Enjoyed a pleasant walk on a crisp cool morning but walked without bug spray. I would highly recommend spraying with big spray before setting out. Lots of birds, geese, rabbits and squirrels but didn’...  more »
  • One of the last things I got to do during my stay in Fairbanks was to go hiking through the Wedgewood Sanctuary. I was recommended to go by other travelers I've met on tour and I'm glad I did. For me,...  more »

  • I feel like this is a little hidden gem in Fairbanks! Not a lot of people talk about it and it's not on very many websites as the "touristy" thing to do. It's a cute little walking trail through some forest and around a lake. We wore mosquito wrist bands and didn't get bit at all. We saw many different bird species and even a few rabbits. There are some great shots for taking scenic pictures as well. The trail is easy but good exercise!
  • If you wedged a wood into a wildlife sanctuary this would be it! But seriously, it's a great place to visit when visiting Fairbanks. There's lots of wildlife for those that has a quiet step and a good eye 😁 many species of mammal and fowl can be found on a typical night out
  • I feel like I just walked through a postcard! Such a beautiful area, great walking paths that are wheelchair friendly, abundance of fauna and absolutely magical views.
  • This is a real nice running and walking soft hiking path in town they have Lake back there at which has a little building near the lake to where you can get up close and watch the birds and some camouflage sometimes you do see an occasional moose it's next to creamer's field walking hiking path very peaceful for being so close to Fairbanks I recommend this place you need to go for a walk or get away from everything I feel safe from wildlife when I do go back there saying that there is no big Critters
  • 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.
