The Primrose Ridge Trail starts at the Primrose rest area in beautiful Denali National Park.

The trail takes you to a bench, with scenic panoramic views of the park. This is a great spot for birding - common species being rock ptarmiga, surfburds, snow buntings, and long-taild jaggers. In the spring, sheep and primrose wildflowers are abundant.
