Things To Do
You've come a long way to get here and have finally arrived at your destination: Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve. But now what? How do you spend your time? This area offers endless opportunities to explore and discover. Here are some suggestions to consider:
For spectacular views, drive the Edgerton Highway to the historic town of Chitina, located about an hour from the Wrangell-St. Elias Visitor Center. Along the way, stretch your legs on the Tonsina River Trail or Liberty Falls Trail. Once in Chitina, stop at the Chitina Ranger Station to talk with a park ranger. After exploring Chitina, drive over the bridge to the Copper River where in summer you can watch busy Alaskans harvesting salmon with fishwheels and dipnets.
