Triple Lakes Hike

The Triple Lakes Trail inside Denali National Park is an exciting new offering providing visitors with one of the best opportunities for a serene immersion into the boreal forest of Interior Alaska. This adventure on an improved trail inside Denali National Park begins with a gradual and consistent hill climb providing spectacular views of the Nenana River and the expansive glaciallycarved Yanert Valley. This Alaska trail then descends and levels off to provide access to the three alpine lakes that give this Alaska trail its name. Beautiful views of the lakes, bounded by the elevated ridges, make for some outstanding photo opportunities. The lakes are abundant with arctic grayling and also home to resident beavers. Moose enjoy the sheltered valley and other small mammals are abundant increasing the opportunity for wildlife viewing. Countless wildflowers dot the hillsides adjacent to the trails and wild blueberries are abundant in August. This is a “must do” Alaska hike for any Denali visitor desiring to experience some solitude. This Alaska hike is rated moderately strenuous due to the reasonably steep ascent at the onset of this hike. Only avid hikers with appropriate conditioning and footwear should consider this option.

The round trip for this Alaska hike is approximately 4 miles and the estimated duration is 3 – 3 ½ hours. Two person minimum is required.

Rates: $99.00 Adults $49.50 Children (ages 11 – 15)

Steps Through Time Hike

Hiking-1.jpg

Experience the concept of true wilderness by stepping away from the developed areas and immersing yourself in the tranquility of a hike through the mixed spruce, birch and alder forest that encompass the Denali area and Interior Alaska. This guided hike will set you on the trail of discovery and adventure as your certified guide interprets many of the unique natural attributes of the area. Follow the trail of frontier hunters on the way to an old hunting cabin and take in some of the spectacular scenery on this invigorating hike. The trail is rustic and leads away from the lodge, gradually enveloping the hiker into a quiet and refreshing environment. You’ll get a bird’s eye view of the glacially-carved Nenana River valley. The guide will help in your understanding of the immense power and magnitude of the forces that shaped the land. This is a moderately strenuous to difficult hike and proper footwear is essential in order to provide for good, secure footing along the trail. You’ll need to step over exposed roots and around wet areas and boulder hop over Lynx Creek. The trail rises in elevation at various spots and can provide a moderately strenuous workout for most participants. Sightings of fox, moose, dall sheep and numerous birds are always possible, but the scenery is what this trail is mostly about. This is a well marked but unimproved trail still used by hikers, backpackers, and hunters to easily access some of the most beautiful wilderness areas of Denali.

Rates: $99.00 Adults $49.50 Children (ages 11 – 15)
