How much time between these shuttle stops, areas?

I would like to know how much time it takes for the

shuttle bus to get to these stops (I do realize

it will be approximate times):

from Tek campground to Polychrome Pass

from Polychrome Pass to Toklat

from Toklat to Fish Creek

from Fish Creek to Thorofare Pass

from Thorofare Pass to Eielson Visitor Center

I am trying to plan hiking areas and times it takes

to get to each place,plus how much time we'll

actually have to hike at each place.

I know some of you experts and hikers will help me

out. With much thanks!

There will be others that fill in alot of the info for you on this forum. I didn't pay much attention to times last year while on the bus.

In a couple of months, the park service will put the entire shuttle schedule on line that shows each bus, their scheduled arrival time at each stop, and their scheduled departure time for each stop. It is the exact one they post at the stops. Website is below:

nps.gov/dena/planyourvisit/visitor-transport…

When it becomes available, you can open it and enlarge it from the tool bar so you can read it.

Have a great time!

Thanks for the information. I will check into

that site and see the schedule. That should be a

big help. We can't wait to get there!

The shuttle buses are very casual & wildlife rules the road!

Plus, it's not yet certain whether Eielson will be reopened on time.

We hike extensively in the park & have never had trouble getting a shuttle back to Tek campground; however, we never wait until the last couple of runs.

If you are at Tek Campground, then I assume you have at least a few days to hike.

denalicat,

Thanks for your input. We plan to go to Wonder Lake

for the shuttle tour and then do 'hop on, hop off'

wherever we want to hike. We are going in Aug. so

I hope the Eielson Center will be open by then.

We are so looking forward to this trip!
