Denali National Park, alaskaBackpackers who love the mountains will enjoy this 6-million acre area of wild Alaska. The backcountry is divided into 41 units, which has a limit of how many hikers per unit. These units within the Denali Wilderness offers backpackers, hikers an expansive terrain to travel and camp on.

However the terrain lacks developed trails, bridges and campsites which means that backpackers are free to roam and make their own paths. Discovery is what it’s all about.
