  • This is a must visit if you are in Denali. Not overly strenuous but those out of practice will have to make a few 'rests stops'. Great views and photo ops.  more »
  • I had a couple hours to burn and wanted to explore the park more so I jumped on this trail. It was an easy hike, mostly flat but had amazing views and plenty of wildlife to spot.  more »

  • Amazing trail. Got to watch beavers build a dam for over an hour. Unmatched experience as far as hiking trails go in the park. Just freaking awesome. We also got charged by moose here so be careful!
  • Excellent well marked trails. Saw red squirrel, a big beaver and a moose 20 feet off trail. Almost walked into her. No problems though, we were quiet and still and she just meandered away
