Denali in August

Post by bbranan » Mon May 11, 2015 7:19 pm


I have a trip planned for August 15-30, backpacking and packrafting in and around Denali National Park. This is a low-cost way to get my annual Alaska fix. I'm interested in finding partners for part or all of the trip.

Here's the barebones plan:

-Go to Denali NP and raft the Sanctuary River and hike the Eiselson Loop and some other areas, depending on permit situation.

-Take Yukon bus shuttle from NP to mile 185 of Parks Highway and float Chulitna River to Denali State Park.

-Hike Kesugi Ridge trail.

-Float Chulitna to Talkeetna, take Yukon bus to Anchorage.

Questions or suggestions? Interested? Feel free to post a message here or send me an email at
