"Steps Through Time" Trail

"Steps Through Time" Trail

"Steps Through Time" Trail

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.
