With no crowds, designated trails, or campsites, backpacking in Alaska’s Denali National Park is as wild as it gets.
Shadowed by the tallest summit in North America, Denali’s wilderness abounds with adventure opportunities. Whether you wish to watch the grizzlies in their natural habitat, follow in the footsteps of the indigenous Athabascan people, or just sit among the glaciers and enjoy the silence, Denali leaves you free to forge your own way.
Of course, leaving the designated routes behind comes with its fair share of challenges. Luckily, AMGA Guide Jack Bynum is here to help!
