Kennels Patrol Map

The map below tracks, in real time, the patrols of the Denali sled dogs. Points remain on the map for a week or so, allowing you to get an idea of the routes taken by the dogs.

Sled dogs patrol the Wilderness areas of Denali -- the part of the park where no motorized vehicles may go. Patrols serve multiple purposes - they establish recreational trails for park visitors to ski, skijor or mush along; they maintain a ranger presence in the backcountry of the park in winter; and they often have specific goals, like hauling equipment to a remote science / research station in the park, or removing human-made debris and garbage left over from the earlier days of the park, when there were fewer concerns about occasional junk washing down a river from the Denali Park Road.
