Getting to Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
Driving to Wrangell-St. Elias
Wrangell-St. Elias is accessible via AK-4 (the Richardson Highway), and AK-1 (the Tok Cutoff). Access within the park is mostly limited to gravel roads, boats, and airplanes.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the Copper Center Visitor Center in Wrangell-St. Elias. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while these maps are useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Wrangell-St. Elias Trail Map.
