Take an easy stroll around the pristine and tranquil Byers Lake in Denali State Park. This crystal clear lake is tucked between the Talkeetna Mountains and the Alaska Range giving you some of the closest and most majestic views of Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley). Your professional naturalist guides will share their knowledge of the park and its inhabitants. They can help you spot trumpeter swans, loons, beavers, bears and spawning salmon so keep your eyes open and cameras ready! Look for blueberries and cranberries (when in season). Enjoy wildflowers like wild iris, dogwood, and twin flowers and take home a healing salve made from native plants. Lastly, visit a historic log cabin built when the area was home to trappers, traders and gold miners.
