The Roadside Trail in Denali National Park, the Roadside Trail follows the road (but is out of sight!) from the park headquarters to the Visitor Access Center.

The trail is well maintained and commonly used as a way to get from one building to the next. This trail also leads to the kennels where sled dog demonstrations occur.
