Denali's Trailless Wilderness
All overnight stays in Denali National Park's wilderness areas require a free backcountry permit. They can be obtained at the visitor center Mile 0.7 of Denali Park Road during the summer months, and at park headquarters the rest of the year. Permits are issued one day before a trip; advance reservations are not accepted. Most areas require the use of bear-resistant food containers (BRFCs), loaned free of charge with your permit. (BRFCs can also be purchased at the visitor center bookstore.) Containers should be returned promptly at the end of a trip. Note: Day hikers do not need special permits or BRFCs but must avoid areas closed to entry. Check with the backcountry desk for updates on wildlife closures.
