We visited Creamer's FIeld after a long drive to run off some energy. The paths are well-maintained and just beautiful. There was a field full of sandhill cranes to watch. The woman in the visitor's center was very helpful, not only with information about birds, but also with general Fairbanks tips that travelers may not figure out on their own (such as where to go for indoor fun on a very hot summer day). This is a free attraction, which is also fabulous!
All our 4 kids and our nieces and nephews enjoyed exploring this large park and field with it's numerous walking trails and forest glades. We visited on a clear and glorious day in Fairbanks where the sky and clouds looked like paintings on a big large screen because of their deep colors.
We started our walk next to the dairy where we parked and entered the trail and headed north. There we saw lots of sandhill cranes eating in the grasses. Then the trail wandered into the boreal forest and the kids loved walking the elevated boardwalks through the trees. About half a mile in, there was a look out tower where you could climb and see the forest and grassy plains beyond. It was a great way to see into the tops of the spruce trees and to see their purple cones.
We looped back around and found our car again and I wished for many more days to visit this beautiful field, forest and trails.
