Rock Creek Trail

Looking for a way to enhance your Denali experience? Consider a guided hike inside the National Park on the Rock Creek Trail. This “front country” experience offers guests an opportunity to blend a pleasant hike on an improved trail inside the Park boundary. Guests will be picked up by their interpretive guide and shuttled over to the Denali Visitor Center as the guide shares some of the basics about the unique history and attributes of Denali. The participants will take off from there on an invigorating loop hike of approximately four miles on the Rock Creek Trail, returning back to the Visitor Center via the Roadside Trail. This hike is available at 6:00pm only.

Return transportation is provided back to your hotel, or you can choose to go off on your own and learn more at the Denali National Park Visitor Center and utilize your hotel's courtesy shuttle service for return transportation from the Visitor Center where applicable. Take away photos, knowledge, and memories from this guided hike.
