Tangle Lakes Archaeological District

The 135-mile unpaved road between Denali National Park and Tangle Lakes travels along the south side of the Alaska Range and was the original road to Denali National Park. The views of the Alaska Range, dozens of free flowing rivers (including the mighty Susitna River) and countless lakes are superb. En route we'll look for wildlife, visit at an old abandoned miner's cabin and explore the treeless tundra. This is remote and wild country!

Tangle Lakes are located near the east end of the road and are the headwaters of the National Wild and Scenic Delta River. We'll camp here to explore the lakes by canoe and to hike in the nearby tundra. Berry picking is also a popular activity in the fall.
