Special Notes:
* Winter ski trails are closed to snowmobiles, but areas are open to ride north to Troublesome Creek and beyond. Snowmobiles allowed for general access to the cabins with sufficient snow. When the Chulitna River freezes well, crossing it opens vast expanses to riding in the foothills of the Alaska Range, and the groomed snowmobile trails in the Bunco Lake/Peters hills area. Off-road vehicles prohibited in the park. Snowmobile openings announced when there is sufficient snow cover to protect underlying vegetation. Check the Denali State Park park condition reports for trail conditions and snowmobile openings.

** Pets must be under control at all times and you are responsible for cleaning up your pet’s waste.

Pack out everything you pack in.
