The Rock Creek Trail is a great introduction hike in Denali National Park for intermediate hikers. The trail features beautiful wild flowers and stunning views of the surrounding landscapes.

This trail climbs above the Park Road between the Park Headquarters and the Visitor's Center. The initial 600 foot ascent of the trail rewards hikers with a gorgeous view of the river valley and of the Alaska Range on a clear day. There is a bench to rest at on the highest point of the trail. The trail is 4.5 miles out and back, and is best used from April to September.
