“One of the few groomed trails in Denali National Park, starting near Wonder Lake Campground.”— Dan Glowinski
Family Friendly Endless blueberry picking in season and areas with unobstructed views for miles, this medium-length journey with an easy grade is a great option for the whole family.
You lose all views of anything but evergreen trees once you reach the forests. The trail ends when you come out of the thick pine trees at the McKinley River. This is a great spot to see wildlife - in the open areas, you can see for miles.
