Denali National Park, Alaska: Guide to Hiking, Photography and Camping

This is our favorite guidebook for Denali National Park. As the title suggests, it covers it all. It does an especially good job of describing how to best use the park’s shuttle system to maximize your time. For some ridiculous reason, this book goes out of print, despite it being new in 2015. Copies can be hard to find, but used ones are usually available at Amazon.
