The Denali Highway is a 135-mile gravel road straight through the wild heart of Alaska completed in 1957 to provide motorists with access to Denali National Park and Mount McKinley. The Denali Highway found itself virtually abandoned in 1972 when the paved George Parks Highway opened, linking Anchorage and Fairbanks directly with the park. Since then the Denali Highway has served mainly as a passage into the back country for hunters and fishermen and as a byway for those seeking a peek at the way all of Alaska used to look, with wilderness in every direction.
