Shuttle buses operate through the second week after Labor Day each year. The exact day bus service ends will vary year to year. Use the map above to discern how far into the park buses and private vehicles may travel right now. Most summer visitor services and activities are available between late May and early September. During this time, the park’s main visitor center is open daily, 8 am – 6 pm. Once significant snow falls, the road may frequently close at Mile 3, Park Headquarters. The first snow may fall in July or August, but true winter doesn’t set in until September or October. At that point, winter activities become possible, like skiing or dog mushing. The winter visitor center is open daily (except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day) from 9 am – 4:30 pm. For a visitor to Denali, the summer is when most services and activities are possible, and is when access into the park is easiest.

Mid-June to mid-August also sees the largest number of visitors to the park. For more information Click Here
