This is as far as you can drive into Denali with your own vehicle. It's a nice trail along the Savage River and you can do a mile loop, down one side and up the other. Great mountain views.

we walked to the end of the trail and decided to explore past the bridge before crossing over. we probably went another 3-4 miles down the river (all climb/walkable) before we returned to cross the bridge for the return leg. the beauty of doing it this way is that there is no one in any of our pictures!

We we hiked this trail prior to them having to close it. The next day it was closed because after we left a black bear and brown bear went after a moose and her calf. Since they are protective of their kill sites they had to close it for the day. It is a beautiful hike and clearly there is wildlife

We really enjoyed this hike. We ended up doing it in reverse so it seamed longer than 2 miles. Lots of birds and small wild life like arctic ground squirrels. Pretty easy hike for all levels.

Nice view and minimal up and down on the Savage River Trail so it is good for families with younger kids.
