Take the Scenic Route Along the Denali Highway

Dirt road leading into snow covered mountains.

The 135-mile unpaved Denali Highway can give a driver quick access between the Parks Highway and the Richardson Highway, but is also a great scenic drive with opportunities for hiking, ATVing, fishing, hunting, wildlife viewing, and camping. For the adventurous and water-savvy explorer, the Denali Highway also has access for floating the Delta and Gulkana Wild and Scenic Rivers; one of the very few Wild and Scenic Rivers in Alaska that is accessible by road.
