Chena River Nature Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Chena Lakes Recreation Area is a bustling weekend destination just twenty minutes from Fairbanks. Despite the crowds, the Chena River Nature Trail is something of an unspoiled gem tucked away in a forested corner of the park. Accompanied by an excellent interpretive guide, nature lovers will experience a great day hike on this older earthy trail passing through a variety of phases of boreal forest succession.
Chena Lakes Recreation Area is a mainstream weekend getaway for Fairbanks residents, but don’t let the swarm of people, eighty campsites, or massive parking areas detour you from this nature trail. The hike is relatively unknown to beachgoers, lightly trafficked and tucked away behind
picnicking grounds in the River Park section of the recreation area."
