TOP THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN MT. MCKINLEY

Mt. McKinley

The highest mountain in North America, McKinley is also perhaps the coldest mountain in the world outside of Antarctica, a challenge for even the most experienced climbers.

 

Talkeetna

Talkeetna was originally the site of a Tanaina Indian village, and was settled as a mining town in 1896. Today, this small distinctive community is probably the best location to view Mt. McKinley.

 

Denali State Park

Denali State Park covers 325,240 acres north of Anchorage and south of Denali National Park. It boasts a landscape that varies from meandering lowland streams to alpine tundra.

 

Rivers – Talkeetna, Susitna & Chulitna

The Talkeetna and Chulitna Rivers join the Susitna River at Talkeetna, an Indian (Tanaina) word meaning ”river of plenty”. On these waterways, serene beauty and abundant wildlife abound.

 

Glaciers

Glaciers cover one million acres, or one-sixth of Denali National Park. The most massive glaciers in the park drain snow and ice from the flanks of Mt. McKinley.

 

Sled Dog Experience

Experience provides an in-depth look at the world of dog mushing and the Iditarod, Alaska’s great sled dog race, including the training, racing and breeding of these champion sled dogs.

 

Alaska Homesteading

After the U.S. purchased Alaska, farmers, miners and wilderness pioneers began claiming land. Until 1986, homesteading remained a viable method of settling Alaska.

 

Gold Panning

Just as the lure of gold brought the miners to Alaska over 100 years ago, it still does today. Trapper Creek Museum unveils how to pan for gold and how gold mining has progressed through the years.
