Backpacking and Hiking
Traveling on foot affords more opportunity for exploration and discovery. Hiking on ridges and overpasses reveals splendid vistas, while the slower pace allows for a closer inspection of blooming tundra or wooly caterpillars. Backpacking can take you to the most remote and least traveled areas of the Park and Preserve and day hiking expands the river trip experience.
