From Anchorage to Denali

Jump to last reply

I am so excited, planning a trip to Alaska! We're flying in to Anchorage around 3:00 p.m. on Sept. 9, and definitely want to go to Denali. Unfortunately, Sept. 11 is the last day that the shuttle runs. So here are my questions: Map quest says that it takes four hours to get from Anchorage to Denali. Is it realistic to think that we can leave Anchorage early in the morning and get to Denali in time for the last Eielson shuttle at 12:30 p.m.? If so, what time should we leave Anchorage? Once we get to Denali, how long does it take to find the shuttle, park, etc?

If that's not possible, we'll just take our time getting there and wait until the next day. But I'm worried about putting off the shuttle until the last day in case it's raining horribly or something. What advice would you give?
