Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve is the largest and most magnificent of Alaska's sprawling national parks. It contains nine of the 16 highest peaks in the United States. This grandiose mountain region on the frontier with Canada contains numerous glaciers, lakes, and mountain streams and is home to a rich variety of wildlife.
Wrangell-St. Elias is a superb country for climbers, walkers, and water sports enthusiasts. And the park's Kennecott Mines National Historic Landmark gives insight into the one-time mill town with barely preserved heritage buildings and abandoned mines.
Other points of interest include a selection of 14 backcountry cabins, many of which are only accessible by flying into remote airstrips.
