The public is invited to help with the construction of the new Savage Alpine Trail on Saturday, June 2, as part of the park's celebration of National Trails Day. Volunteers will work with the National Park Service trail crew on the construction of a 150-foot boardwalk, and help build a section of new trail. This event is a great opportunity to get first hand experience on the challenges of building and maintaining trails in a sub-arctic environment, and to enjoy a beautiful area of the park. The 4.5- mile trail begins in forest and climbs to tundra, and will be accessible from either end by the free park shuttle. It is expected to be completed in 2013.

Denali is home to both black bears and grizzly (brown) bears. Black bears inhabit the forested areas of the park, while grizzly bears mainly live on the open tundra. Almost all bears seen by visitors along the Park Road are grizzlies.
