Plan Your Visit
Roughly 400,000 intrepid travelers journey to Denali National Park and Preserve each year, primarily between late May and early September.
The Highlights of a Visit
Most come in search of wildlife or glimpses of 20,320' tall Mt. McKinley, the roof of North America. All are encouraged to take one of the many bus rides along the Denali Park Road, the sole vehicle access into the heart of the park. Whether you seek wildlife, scenery, or solitude and communion with this wild land, these webpages and our park newspaper should be your guides to planning your trip.
Check out our American Sign Language welcome video, too.
