Runner Notes

A short trail that could be tied together with other nearby campground trails to make a post lunch run.

Description

This trail routes visitors on a tidy gravel loop past a historic ranger cabin that is still active today. Located in a taiga forest near the Savage River Campground, it's a worthwhile look for campers as well as a stop on the privately operated Denali Natural History Tour bus. The short distance and level terrain keeps strain to a minimum, and this route allows you to take the the natural scenery and history surrounding you.
