Denali's National Park Service rangers lead five-hour Discovery Hikes in the backcountry wilderness, as well as more leisurely walks at Horseshoe Lake and Savage River. For the more experienced climbers and hikers, the National Park Service also offers guided climbs of both Mount McKinley and Mount Foraker. You are required to register 60 days before the day of ascent and there is an additional fee.

Active and AdventureExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Attend a campground presentation and learn about everything from grizzlies to glaciers during informal 30- to 45-minute programs.
  • Check out a Sled Dog Demonstration, where Rangers and dogs work together to demonstrate a traditional Alaskan mode of travel.
  • If you go on a Discovery Hike, which are great fun, expect uneven terrain, small stream crossings, close encounters with dense vegetation, and unpredictable weather.
