Denali National Park Scenic Road

Taking the Denali National Park Road will allow you to see Denali rise over the mountain range like an honored leader at 20,310 feet high. From inside the park, the summit enhances the diverse landscape, presenting spectacular photo opportunities. Only parts of the road are open to private vehicles, so expect to take the shuttle to see the rest (weather permitting).

Plan on riding a shuttle bus at least partly through Denali National Park Road since private vehicles are limited. The route, encompassing Alaska's tundra landscape and mighty Denali, impresses. Start surrounded by woodlands and meadows. Then enter the tundra region’s rolling plains. Rocky hills and snow-covered peaks—making up the Alaska Range—complete the scene.
