These 10 miles of pure Alaska experience are among the best 100 miles of trail in the whole national park system. The catch: It’s barely a trail. How did we zero in on just 16 miles of trail in the 13.2 million acres encompassed by the biggest, wildest park in the entire national park system? It’s partly a technicality: Actual trails are hard to come by in Wrangell-St. Elias (and in truth, the aptly named Goat Trail is still only sort of a path). But mostly, it’s because this chunk of tundra where the Wrangell and St. Elias Ranges meet is raw Alaska at its finest. On this high-flying variation, you’ll get all the scenic highlights while avoiding the alder thickets and potentially dangerous river fords of lower Chitistone Gorge. The route passes waterfalls, skirts enormous moraines, and plunges into a deep gorge. Allow at least 5 days in case of weather delays—and for excellent detour hikes, like a circumnavigation of Wolverine Mesa, or exploring around Chitistone Pass and the Skolai Lakes.
