We'd like to go on a day hike around Fairbanks, where do we go?

Answer:

Within a half hour’s drive of Fairbanks is the Chena River State Recreation Area (CRSRA) which provides a wide variety of maintained hiking trails. The White Mountains National Recreation Area also contains trails within an easy drive north of Fairbanks. If you are looking for great in-town hikes/walks, try Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks North Campus trails.
