Stunning! I don't want to misrepresent myself…we viewed Denali from Talkeetna as opposed to climbing Denali. In fact, we were told that only 25% of the visitors who want to see Denali actually get to see it as it's usually shrouded in clouds. We were lucky for one day where we had stunning views of Denali and the entire Alaska... More

This experience depends on whether or not mountain is visible, and it was for much of our visit! Try to see it from different vantages--Parks Highway, Denali State Park, national Park Road, and flying around it! Take pictures when you can, because by the time you get closer, it can be clouded over.

If you are wanting to see part or all of Mt. McKinley you should stay at the Mt. McKinley Princess Lodge !!! It is laid out so that if the mountain peeks out while you're dining, relaxing, or playing cards in the Lodge you can experience it !!

We were blessed to seen Denali from the south and north. Also several times from inside the park. We are just some of the few and lucky. So feel blessed. We were there first week of June 2014.

For those lucky enough to see the mountain, it is a glorious sight. The visitor center and viewing sight is well worth a visit.

This is an exceptional park. The views are awe inspiring. You cannot spend enough time here. Bring your camera. Be sure you can get shots from a distance.

Beyond wonderful. We were lucky to have great weather and visuality. Mike, our bus driver and tour guide was great. Best to go in early morning as we saw all kinds of wildlife, grizzly, moose, porcupine, caribou, Wonder Lake at the 85 mile marker, all the mountains and Mt McKinley. Great visitors centers. Highly recommend the sled dog presentation as... More
