Hike the Bison Gulch Trail

Denali Visitor Center - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Bison Gulch is a technical hike in Denali National Park that rewards experienced hikers with one-of-a-kind views.

The Bison Gulch Trail is approximately 9.4 miles out and back. You'll hardly notice the distance as your attention will be on stunning Mt. Healy. 

The hike begins at the Denali Visitor center, and climbs approximately 3900 feet in elevation. Wear and bring lots of layers. This trail becomes more of a scramble toward the top, with lots of loose rock.
