The piles are at the Parker Cabin, which is located on Moose Creek approximately 7.5 miles east of the Kantishna airstrip and 5 miles north of the Denali Park Road. The material being burned is from hazard fuel reduction (fire protection) around the historic cabin.

In 1908, Charles Sheldon – a hunter and naturalist – described in his journal the idea of a park that would allow visitors to enjoy the beauty he saw while visiting Alaska. In 1917 his vision became reality, with the creation of Mount McKinley National Park.
