Trail Guides

Not everyone can join a ranger for a hike. If you are going to explore Denali's trails on your own, take advantage of an assortment of online trail guides and resources.

Recommended Trails

  • a bridge crossing a small river with a trail visible on either bank

    At just over 9 miles, Triple Lakes is the longest trail in Denali, with a trailhead near the Denali Visitor Center and another on Highway 3.

  • green-sided mountains rising on either side of a valley
    Mount Healy Trail

    This trail brings you about halfway up Mount Healy. Great views await if the skies aren't cloudy!
