Pass By: Denali National Park

Instead of the big bus tours, explore the park your way! Take a selfie at the park sign, explore the Denali National Park Visitor Center, tour historic buildings, venture down hiking trails, and visit the park’s own sled dogs at the Denali kennels. Traversing the  the entire accessible road to the Savage River affords views of Denali (Mount McKinley) as well as frequent sightings of moose, caribou, bears, and a myriad of other critters. Expect a 40 mile round trip which allows extra time for exploring the park’s attractions.

Pass By: Denali Highway

Before the “new” highway between Anchorage and Fairbanks was finished in the 1970’s, the Denali Highway stretching from Paxson to Cantwell was the only way to reach Denali National Park by road. Still just a seldom-traveled gravel roadway today, it is renowned for picturesque alpine landscapes and untouched wilderness. This scenic byway was recently ranked #2 worldwide as the “Drive of a Lifetime” by National Geographic Traveler magazine. Besides the ability to view Denali (Mount McKinley) from numerous points, travelers will likely see wildlife along the route. Expect an 80 mile round trip.

Pass By:

Driving north winds you through 10 miles of Nenana River Canyon and across the highway’s highest bridge, known as the Windy Bridge. Around the town of Healy, the region’s mining history emerges. To the east, you’ll see the Usibelli Coal Mine, the only active coal mine in Alaska. Just beyond is the Stampede Road, a historic mining trail, this is the setting for the true-life novel, “Into the Wild.” Round trip about 50 miles.
