Filing a Trip Plan
It is strongly recommended that visitors file a trip plan with a friend or relative. This plan should include
Instruct your friend or relative to call the park and initiate a search if they do not hear from you by a prearranged date and time.
We also encourage all visitors to fill out our voluntary backcountry registration form and the Alaska State Trooper SAR form. These forms provide appropriate information for park rangers should a search be initiated. However, in keeping with the wilderness nature of the Park and Preserve, rangers do not follow the itinerary of backcountry visitors.
