Denali National Park and Preserve is Alaska's most-visited attraction for a reason: the most accessible of Alaska's national parks and one of only three connected to the state's highway system, the 6-million-acre wilderness offers views of mountains so big they seem like a wall on the horizon; endless wildlife, from cinnamon-color Toklat grizzlies to herds of caribou, to moose with antlers the size of coffee tables; glaciers with forests growing on them; autumn tundra the color of a kid's breakfast cereal. Denali is a chance for a visitor to have the wildlife and scenic experience that Yellowstone offered 50 years ago, but Denali has ever so much more as well. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.
