We're visiting Denali late June 2011 and will only have one full day in the park. We will probably visit the Savage River area the evening we arrive and do the Mt Healy Overlook trail the morning before we leave. For our full day, which is the best shuttle to take, Eielson or Wonder Lake? We will do some hiking from Eielson but would like to stop at one or two other places for short hikes as well.
Also, is it better to get off to hike on the way into the park or go to our furthest destination first and stop for hiking on the return trip? I'm a bit worried at being left stranded if there is no room on the shuttle buses (there will only be two of us). Appreciate any advice.
