  • It’s worth checking out the trail on a clear day to really maximize views of Denali mountain and national park
  • There is an option to make a small loop at the top by heading towards the lake and eventually looping back to the main trail (this will add roughly 1 mile to hike)
  • The hike starts very near the beautiful Kesugi Ken campground; grab a reservation there and stay overnight to relax after your hike
