On George Parks Highway (SR 3), the landscape wraps around the byway like an ocean of beautiful wilderness. Alaska’s boreal forest—trimmed in wildflowers in summer and ablaze with color in the short fall—hugs the roads as it skirts Denali State and National Parks. Periodic views offer the awe-inspiring sight of Denali, North America's highest point at 20,310 feet.
