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 for you.

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.
