My buddy and I spend a few weeks backpacking and hiking in Alaska. The first trail we did was the Kesugi Ridge trail located in Denali State Park which is just a couple hours south of Denali National Park. On this trail was our best and only view of Mount Denali (formerly Mount McKinley). This was a pretty sweet trail, the terrain shifted a bit with grassy areas and rocky crags. I would definitly do it again after I had the chance to explore some more of Alaska!
