The Lower Savage Alpine trail is located not far from the visitor center in Denali National Park. This was a nice and easy hike and was very easy to follow. We only hiked about 1.5 miles in to the trail before turning around (due to schedule limitations), but there was an option to complete a 6-mile loop for this trail.
One of the coolest things about this trail, was that I was able to Mount Denali (McKinley) during this hike (pictured above). Mount Denali was viewable about 1.5 miles in to the trail, and that is where we turned around.
…and found a Caribou antler along the trail (pictured below). This was turned in to the Murie Science and Learning center (which serves as the visitor center during he winter) as it is against the law to keep such an item found in a national park.
