United States Alaska

Denali National Park and Preserve

A vast Alaskan wilderness home to North America's highest peak, abundant wildlife, glaciers, and over 6 million acres of natural beauty.

Tips from the community

Setting the ball rolling is the Alaskan land of superlatives and mind-bending dimensions. Ready? This one boasts the highest peak on the continent of North America: Denali. The park spans 4.7 million acres. It’s larger than the whole state of New Jersey. Yep, you could literally put this one on top of the Garden State — but there wouldn’t be a tanned Jersey Shore bod in sight. Instead, you’d find only ice-caked mountains and wandering grizzly bears. One for real intrepid types, Denali National Park includes highlights like the glacial Toklat River and the Stony Hill Overlook.
