I love the mountains, but the full view of this one is unbelievable because the base starts at lower sea level than most mountains. Have loved Green Mtn Falls area around Pikes Peak, but now Pikes Peak look like a little foothill.

Given a good view, you have to see this and then travel up it...

We have many pictures given it's stature...

There's a lot in Denali to visit as well though..

This is a dated review. My husband and I took a train trip in 2010 from Anchorage to Denali Park with an overnight stop near Talkeetna. The views of Mt. McKinley from the train were beautiful. This all depends on the weather, of course. The highlight of our trip was a small airplane tour circling Mt McKinley and the other mountains (I have forgotten their names now). This tour originated in Talkeetna, and it is one of our all-time favorite traveling highlights. It was expensive; I believe it was $250 per person, but so worth it. We still talk about it, and would definitely do it again.

Its really called Denali. The locals aren't kidding, your lucky if you get a chance to see it. It took me the 3rd day in the area to see it. My view was from Telketna which has a viewing area just outside the village.

Ironically, the best place to see the mountain is actually outside Denali Park. If flying is your thing, there are plenty of chartered flights that take you around the peak.

From the ground, there are 2 really good spots, best one is on petersville road past the mining area which gets you the closest to the base that you can get by car. (4-wheel drive and very detailed map required). One of the famous pictures of the mountain is from here. 2nd spot is in Telketna, the viewing area.

We were very lucky to get a chance to see this Awesome MT. from a distance while traveling on The McKinley Explorer train. To see this giant sticking up out of the clouds is unbelievable! Feel yourself one of the lucky one if you do see this Mountain, as not many get the chance. There's only a 10-20% chance.
