The Taiga Trail in Denali National Park is a perfect introduction loop trail for first-time visitors to the park.

The trail is a quick and scenic 1.6 miles, with wonderful wild flowers and ample opportunities to see wildlife (along with the surrounding river valley and Alaska Range). The Taiga trail is best used from April to August. This trail also serves the purpose of connecting the visitor's center with other trails nearby.
