Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve

The Chugach, Wrangell, and St. Elias mountain ranges converge here at Wrangell St. Elias National Monument. The total acreage makes this the largest U.S. national park, the size of six Yellowstones. Four major mountain ranges meet here, and include 9 of the 16 highest peaks in the United States. The high country is covered with snow year round, resulting in extensive ice fields and glaciers. The Bagley Ice field is the largest subpolar icefield in North America. Together, Wrangell-St. Elias and the adjoining Kluane National Park in Canada form the premier mountain wilderness in North America.

The park can be reached from the Richardson Hwy, via the Edgerton Highway to Chitina or via the Nabesna Road from Slana on the Tok Cutoff. Wrangell St. Elias is truly one of the last unspoiled wilderness parks in North America.
