    What a beautiful hike and a real Denali gem. It’s accessible via the visitor center and is difficult only in the distance traveled which out and back was 18 miles. We split our group in two and swapped the car key mid way. The quiet surreal wilderness of the ridge line was stunning but the real winner was the lush tundra, alpine vegetation; the lichens, worts, fungi, mosses and berries. Saw no animals but plenty of sign. The lakes were beautiful but plan lunch on the ridge line. You’ll know you’re in Denali wilderness.
