Mount Healy Overlook Trail
The Mount Healy Overlook Trail is a strenuous hike of 4.5 miles (7.3 km) round trip, three to four hours roundtrip, from the Denali Visitor Center via the Tiaga Trail and a trail junction, with 1,700 feet of elevation change, up to 25 percent grade, on a 24-inch wide surface of native soils with rocks and roots. Highlights include dramatic views. Benches are provided after the first mile, and 500 feet of elevation gain. Switchbacks climb another mile and 1,200 feet to the overlook.
