At 13.2 million acres (six times the size of Yellowstone National Park), Wrangell St. Elias is the largest National Park in the United States. Wrangell is home to Mount St. Elias (18,008 ft), one of the tallest peaks in North America, a world class salmon fishery on the Copper River, and the historic Kennecott mill town and copper mines. 

For spectacular views, drive the Edgerton Highway to Chitina. Along the way, stretch your legs on the Liberty Falls Trail and enjoy a panorama of the park’s high peaks. After exploring Chitina, continue to the bridge over the mighty Copper River where in summer you can watch busy Alaskans harvesting salmon with traditional fishwheels and dipnets. Continue down the McCarthy Road to Kennecott where you can join Park Rangers for special programs in the historic mill town as well as guided walks on the Root Glacier with a guide service.
