Fantastic views once you make it to the top! The trail gets quite steep both up and down so be sure to wear proper shoes. It's a beautiful walk at the beginning with the river running to the left side making the temp nice and cool then warming up as you ascend - keep an eye out for blueberries if it's the right season!

This trail is great for easy walking and seeing beautiful forest scenery and waterfowl. The trails are flat, not strenuous at all, many handicap accessible. Just don't expect to do any "hiking," and you will not be disappointed!

A great hike - if moderate means some pretty steep slopes w loose gravel then on target. A great 3 hour hike that is no pushover but worth every view. See several rock formations, climb 1200 ft. It was great. An easy 52 miles from Fairbanks and right of the road

Amazing trail!

Excellent hike, but I highly recommend wearing/bringing bug spray. You can pick blueberries alone the way if they're in season. The views are absolutely beautiful. I was only worried about falling since the ground was muddy and I'm pregnant, but there's plenty to hold onto to prevent this.

It was a long drive from Fairbanks to do this trail. However this trail is well marked and maintained. This challenging trail will take you along the Chenna river then begin on a fairly challenging 8-900 vertical foot climb to the top. Cool rock formations and great panoramic views of the valley and surrounding mountains provide for a dynamic experience.

Beautiful area, well maintained trail. Makes for a good, long day hike, took me about 6.5 hrs. Trail is quite soggy in some areas from all of the recent rain but it made nice watering holes for my dog.

Beautiful, not too challenging until summit area.

Very pretty in the summer. There are some woods in the back of the trail that lead off to some other very pretty trails. Wander lake is back there, it is a man-made lake that has quite a few ducks and other water birds. This is a very easy, wide , marked trail.

well worth the hike to climb around on the tors!

It was awesome my kids enjoyed it and it was first time hiking with my 2 year old. had a kid carrier best investment

my family had an amazing time!

Great hike!

Gorgeous views, the Tors are worth the effort. Moderate hike, but close to being difficult. Do not take the counter-clockwise route, it is super steep to climb. Take it clockwise to climb down the steep section. Take plenty of water and snacks. If taking dogs, make sure their pads are used to the tough terrain or put boots on them. Sunscreen is a definite if you are prone to sunburn. And take lots, and lots of pictures, it's just a spectacular view.
