This one version of the Rat Ponds Tour created by Stan Justice. If you start at the Seventh Day Adventist church, as this route does, please be aware the church parking lot can be busy on weekends. Contact the church or check the website for busy times: https://fairbanksak.adventistchurch.org/

You can also start at the Henrik Court parking area (https://www.trailforks.com/poi/64570/) or at the Fairbanks Golf Course parking lot, when it is open.

Please stay on the groomed trails, especially on the golf course. And please yield to dog teams when you are on the ADMA dog mushing trails (which are the wider, groomed trails not on the golf course).
