Originally established as Mount McKinley National Park in 1917, at only a fraction of the size designated today, the park was set up to protect the Dall sheep native to the area. Included in the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980, Denali National Park and Preserve was expanded and renamed to reflect the native Athabascan language. Encompassing more than 6 million acres, the park is centered around Mount McKinley; standing at 20,237 feet, the peak known locally as “Denali” or “The High One” is the highest point in North America. A single road provides access through the park by shuttle or tour bus; however, the entire 92-mile stretch is only fully traversable during the short summer months, as weather conditions allow.
