The best road in America


It exists so that tourists could experience the wilds of Denali without enduring a month-long trek into the soggy backcountry, many decades ago; it remains unpaved thanks to the steadfast efforts of Adolph Murie, who first rescued the park’s wolves from misunderstanding; it remains untravelled by private motor vehicle traffic, thankfully, for our benefit.  There are many pleasant and cycleable tracks in this country, including rural routes, rail-trails and canal trails, and even other national park roads, but the Denali Park Road might be the best road in America.  This time, they got it right.
