An area larger than Vermont and New Hampshire combined, Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve is named for two mountain ranges that form its backbone. Remnant volcanoes, carved and ground by glaciers, continue to define this vast landscape. Only two roads penetrate the park - McCarthy and Nabesna. They offer spectacular vistas. Trails are unmarked and braided rivers run free and swift. Wilderness is given true context here.
Nearly 10 million acres, or 15,000 square miles, of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve are designated and managed as a wilderness area - the largest in the U.S. National Park system. Find out more about wilderness in Wrangell-St. Elias.
This is a park for wilderness-oriented activities. Travel services and facilities are limited. You are mostly on your own and must be highly self-motivated and self-sufficient. Come climb the mountains, float the rivers, ski the glaciers, or fly above it all. Come, but come prepared!
