Wrangell–St. Elias National Park and Preserve

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Fodor's Review

In a land of many grand and spectacularly beautiful mountains, those in the 13.2-million-acre Wrangell–St. Elias National Park and Preserve are possibly the finest of them all. This extraordinarily compact cluster of immense peaks belongs to four different mountain ranges. Rising through many ecozones, the Wrangell–St. Elias Park and Preserve is largely undeveloped wilderness parkland on a grand scale. The area is perfect mountain-biking and primitive-hiking terrain,

and the rivers invite rafting for those with expedition experience. The mountains attract climbers from around the world. Most of them fly in from Glennallen or Yakutat.
