Can we see Denali from Anchorage?


Yes, on a very clear day, you can see Denali, which is Koyukon Athabascan for "The Great One", all the way from Anchorage. The distance between Denali and Anchorage is approximately 130 miles by air and approximately 225 miles by car. It is best to get up high, like on the top level of any of the parking garages in downtown Anchorage or a top floor of one of the many hotels. If you are on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, you should be able to see Denali at Point Woronzof, Eathquake Park, and Resolution Park but, again, only if the day is very clear.
