Denali National Park & Preserve

Primrose Ridge

Latitude, Longitude: 63.751983, -149.377327

Primrose Ridge is an excellent day or overnight hike. The ridge rises 1,500 feet above the park road, and consists mostly of dry tundra and rolling hills. Water can be difficult to find depending on the weather. On a clear day, Denali may be visible from the top of the ridge. The Savage River flows into one channel through the canyon, but it is possible to hike along the west bank of the river with little difficulty. The northern section of the unit flattens out into a broad open plain of wet and dry tundra, and low brush.
