Savage River Loop Trail

Reviewed 19 June 2018

The bus trip and loop walk were fabulous. It's any easy, free shuttle which takes about 45 minutes from the Bus Depot. The loop is a well prepared, almost flat walk with charming Artic Ground Squirrels and other wildlife along the trail.

The 15-mi drive into the park (farthest you can go by car) + 2 mile loop offered incredible views and was unlike anything we've ever done before! We didn't have time to do the full bus ride into the park, so this short trip gave us a taste of Denali. And...we arrived first thing in the morning (8am in June) and had the entire trail to ourselves! It was a little scary being completely alone in the wilderness (and seeing signs that bears frequent the area), but we made it through the loop without any encounters. This is a must-do in Denali, and if your time is limited make sure you make it to Savage River.

Not worth the money$$$. Guide very knowledgable , just put simply a 2.5 hr nature walk. If you like waking along a one foot track stopping Occassionally to get an update on the various flora then might be worth half the price.

This hike was far more than we expected. The trail was challenging but the reward was amazing views of the parks vistas and wildlife. Be prepared for some rock climbing.

Our family really enjoyed this hike. It was a cool morning. We saw showshoe hare, arctic squirrels, and dahl sheep during our hike. The flowers and leaves were also beginning to come out. Very enjoyable.
