From short walks to all-day adventures, here is the guide to the established trails inside Denali. Stroll through the taiga forest on the paved pathways near the visitor center; walk across the fragile tundra looking for blueberries, tiny wildflowers, marmots and ptarmigan; or strike out on your own and climb a ridge for spectacular views of Denali's six million acres. Each entry includes directions, distance, terrain, difficulty, and a detailed section on what to expect along the trail. Important information on safety, weather, what to bring, wildlife tips, and detailed maps combine to make this an indispensable trail guide. A reading list and tips for keeping Denali wild further enhance your trip into one of our nation's most treasured parks. Kris Capps lives just outside Denali, where she walks five miles a day. When asked to describe one experience visitors should not miss, Capps offered this simple tip: Get off the bus and walk into the wilderness. A longtime Alaska journalist, she is the author of several books, including A Wildlife Guide: Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska.
