Denali National Park and Preserve
August 5 - August 11
The McKinley Bar Trail, near the end of the Denali Park Road, takes hikers from Wonder Lake to the McKinley River and the foothills of the Alaska Range. The 2-mile trail offers spectacular views of Denali and the Alaska Range and takes hikers through open tundra, spruce forest, and across several small streams. The work here is physical and rewarding! Trail workers will hike to the work site to perform maintenance duties that include replacing and installing new boardwalk, constructing turnpike, and tread repair. The nature of the work may include up to 5 miles of day hiking, carrying tools and a heavy pack, working in wet areas along the trail.
