Take a hike along the lower slopes of Mt. Wrangell. The broad, trundle plateau gives you unobstructed views and easy access to the icy Western side of this 13,887 ' peak. On a clear, windless day you may catch a glimpse of the steam plume rising lazily from this active volcano.
Hiking is easy to moderate on alpine tundra, and good camping spots can be had near small lakes and numerous clear streams. For the alert backcountry traveler, this location offers good opportunities to see Caribou, Dall Sheep, Wolves and Bears.
Thank you for all of your help with our recent hiking trip. The Wrangells are absolutely gorgeous. Memories of the trip will visit our dreams for the rest of our lives. Your enthusiasm about the park and preserve during our phone conversations played a large part in our decision to travel to the Wrangells. The route you helped us decide on was perfect for our abilities and the length of time we had available. We all appreciated your concern for our safety and the extremely friendly staff. I will certainly encourage future groups to travel with you..
