Curry Ridge Trail

All Year
Cross Country Skiing

The Curry Ridge Trail began construction in 2016 as part of the first phase of the South Denali Project. It gently climbs 1100 feet up to the lower bench of Curry Ridge and provides access to the rolling tundra terrain of the Lake 1787 area. Views of the Alaska Range and Denali are spectacular from many points along the trail. Timberline is at 1500 feet, where the trail breaks out of the woods and into a subalpine mosaic of alder and tundra patches. Watch for moose and bears throughout the area. PLEASE conserve the sensitive alpine habitat of alpine areas by staying on developed trails. The trail currently terminates at Lake 1787. Construction will continue to expand the trail in future years.
