Savage River Loop Trail

 
The Savage River Loop Trail is an easy to moderate walk of 2.0 miles (3.2 km), 1.5 hours, that begins at a turnaround at Mile 15 of the Denali Park Road, with no elevation gain, negligible grade, on a 24-inch wide surface of native soils with rocks and roots. The first half-mile is wheelchair accessible. The trail travels upstream a mile, crosses a wooden bridge, and returns on the opposite side. Highlights include wildlife on rocky slopes.
