Bicycling is a great way to experience Denali National Park and Preserve!
For a day-trip, you are welcome to either start at the park entrance, or drive to Savage River and begin cycling farther into the park from there. Alternatively, you may buy tickets for a shuttle bus, ride the bus into the park, and get off at whatever point you choose to start cycling. This allows you to tailor just what parts of the Park Road you ride! Buses are limited to two bikes per bus, and not every shuttle is able to carry bikes.
Below are the designated buses that can accommodate bicycles. If you choose to reserve a bus in advance, please call our reservations line at 1-800-622-7275 and specify that you wish to bring bikes on your shuttle. Advance reservations are recommended! Reservations are taken only for westbound buses (further into the Park). Eastbound travel by bus is on a first-come, first-served basis.
