Alaska Trails

Alaska, known for its multitude of lakes, extensive coastline, and defining mountain peaks and glaciers, is the largest state in the U.S. northwest. Besides Alaska’s meandering coastline, the Alaska interior is marked by rivers such as the Yukon River, as well as arctic tundra land and shorelines.

Alaska is home to popular national parks and backpacking destinations like Denali National Park — home to Denali, formerly Mount McKinley, the highest peak in North America at 20,310 feet — as well as others such as Kenai Fjords and Wrangell-St. Elias.
