“Wagon Ride”

D & S Alaskan Trail Rides
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We went on the wagon ride provided by D & S through the Mt. McKinley Princess Lodge. After riding in the wagon for about 45 minutes, we went to a pavilion, cooked s'mores, panned for gold, and couples got to try to master the "moose kiss". I would recommend this tour, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable about Alaska.

Had a chance to go horseback riding in Talkeetna with these folks. they are brand new business in Talkeetna (not really in town) They are located off Montana Creek off the main highway. The trail ride was fun but not much scenery. You ride along the roadway for most of the ride. The guides and owners are very nice. Great horses. Could use some improvement but fun for a few hours.

The wranglers great! They knew most of us were inexperienced and were first and foremost concerned for our safety. They knew which horses were troublemakers and grumpy and kept them near the wranglers during the ride.
Beautiful scenery and wonderful ride. I'd highly recommend it.

This area relied on horses during the trapping and mining days.

This is the best Denali wilderness tour yet. Our guide was Kevin Hey, very knowledgable, organized and helpful. He ran a tight ship. We took the trip back to Kantishna Roadhouse. We saw many moose and bear. Kevin gave us a lot of history about the park, pointers on the activities of the animals and geology lessons on the formation of the glaciers, the mountains and the tundra. It was a very enjoyable learning experience. We have been to Alaska ten times and in the park eight times and twice we took the Kantishna Wilderness Trail tour as it is the best!!!!
