Nabesna Road Alaska
This 42 mile long gravel road begins in Slana on the Tok Cut-Off and travels into the Wrangell-St.
Elias National Park.
Never heard of it? Neither had we. At over 13.2 million acres, that’s 20,000 square miles
of land, Wrangell-St. Elias is the largest park in the National Park System. That's almost
six times the size of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.
Nabesna Road crisscrosses the headwaters country of the Copper and Tanana river drainages.
It is regarded as being a dusty, gravel, dead end road that is short on services but big on
wilderness! A trip down the way of Nabesna Road is a trip of a lifetime as one of the two only
roads that enter into the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve this excursion offers
you that unique chance to explore less seen and often unknown interior region of Alaska. The
drive is an adventure in the midst of the Wrangell, Mentasta and Nutzotin Mountains. Camping,
wildlife viewing, fishing and hiking are just the beginning to what Nabesna Road has in store
Wrangell Mountains and Wrangell St-Elias National Park
Wrangell St. Elias National Park adjoins Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park and Kluane National
Park in Canada to form a 24 million acre wilderness, the largest internationally protected area
in the world.
