Set foot in the largest national park in the U.S.

This is the largest U.S. national park, and its acreage is equivalent to six Yellowstone National Parks. Follow any river or stream to its source and you will find either a receding, advancing, or tidewater glacier. Within the park, you can visit historic mining sites, hike its mountains, float its rivers, ski its glaciers, or fly over this rugged landscape. The sheer number of peaks is awe-inspiring. Major peaks include Blackburn, Sanford, Drum, and Wrangell, all of which can be seen from nearby highways.

Four major mountain ranges converge in the park, namely Alaska, Chugach, and Wrangell-Saint Elias. Among these ranges are 9 of the 16 highest peaks in the United States. The Wrangells are volcanic in origin, but only Mount Wrangell remains active (its last report erupting in 1900) with vents of steam near its summit. With adjoining Kluane National Park in Canada, all these ranges form North America’s premier mountain wilderness. This park is covered with snow year-round and features miles of icefields and glaciers.
