About the Denali Highway

The Denali Highway is one most scenic drives in the United States. This well-maintained 135 mile route connects the Richardson Highway with the Parks Highway enroute to Denali National Park.

Prior to the completion of the Parks Highway in 1971, the Denali was the only route to the Park. The first 20 miles of the eastern end of the is paved to Tangle Lakes, a good gravel roadway takes over for the remaining 110 miles.

Travelers will set their only leisurely pace while traversing the only alpine tundra available on the road system in Southcentral Alaska.

The view from the Maclaren Summit is an awe-inspiring panorama of Alaska Range peaks and the Maclaren Glacier---almost close enough to touch!
