Family Friendly A short gravel path with access to a number of trails around the visitor center. The perfect opportunity to stretch your legs after a day's drive.

Description

This route is an easy gravel trail leading through spruce and aspen forests from the Denali Visitor Center to the Horseshoe Lake Trail. Along the way, it also provides access to the Rock Creek Trail and Mt. Healy Trail. There are some easily navigated open ditches that interrupt the otherwise very smooth tread.
