Kennels Patrol Map

The map below tracks, in real time, the patrols of the Denali sled dogs. Points remain on the map for a week or so, allowing you to get an idea of the routes taken by the dogs.

Sled dogs patrol the Wilderness areas of Denali -- the part of the park where no motorized vehicles may go. Patrols serve multiple purposes - they establish recreational trails for park visitors to ski, skijor or mush along; they maintain a ranger presence in the backcountry of the park in winter; and they often have specific goals, like hauling equipment to a remote science / research station in the park, or removing human-made debris and garbage left over from the earlier days of the park, when there were fewer concerns about occasional junk washing down a river from the Denali Park Road.

 

Denali Sled Dogs

Track the movements of the Denali sled dogs in winter as they patrol the wilderness of the park. Common routes are shown on the map. Red routes are unbroken and/or hazardous. Orange and yellow trails are routes our teams have traveled in the past two weeks. Orange indicates a number of hazards exist. Yellow indicates only minor hazards or difficulties should be expected.
