​This is a slightly less traveled trail in Denali, so hikers are rewarded with stunning views and solitude. Options for this trail are to go halfway, or as far as you would like before turning around.

The Triple Lakes Trail is an 18.9 out and back hike, featuring three lakes and is rated as difficult. The trail is recommended for use from April to September.

You can park at the Visitor Center at Denali National Park and take the free Denali Park Village Shuttle (which runs every hour at the 30 minute mark) to the trail head off of Route 3. The trail takes you to three lakes and then up a bit before you bringing you back downhill to walk along the river. You will come across a small suspension bridge. Bring bug spray.
