Denali Highway & Tangle Lakes

While tourists ride the buses into Denali National Park, Alaskans are driving, cycling, hiking and canoeing the other Denali — The Denali Highway, an unpaved road to the wilderness leading from Paxson through the Alaska Range to Cantwell. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’ll learn about this spectacular alpine route, the incredible outdoor opportunities, and the archeology of the place. Ancient people left evidence of the some of the earliest human travel in the Americas.
