“A good introductory trail.”

Reviewed September 9, 2018

We got to the park around 4-5 pm & wanted to check into our hotel & drive into the park for a quick hike before dinner. This worked out great because we got to drive into the park as far as private vehicles are permitted & then do a quick hike. The trail is very flat with interesting scenery. We did make noise to let any bears know that we were there but didn't see any. The trail took about an hour. We hiked to the right & there is a bridge to cross the river & then you'll briefly walk on the road to get back to the parking lot.

Easy (with proper shoe) and beautiful trail at the end of the road. Especially on a rainy and breezy day. Only caution is parking does appear limited so good luck.

Great trail at the entrance to the park. Easy two mile round trip with good parking and facilities. Spectacular views from alongside a nice smallish river of clear cold water. Plenty of places to sit and rest or just take in the beautiful scenery.

It was a cloudy day on our day visit . The trail is two miles round trip. It was super easy hiking. We did not see animal. By the way, this is as far as you can drive into Park with your own car. Parking isn’t difficult.

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.
