We continue to work with Denali National Park and Preserve on a wide range of issues and recently submitted comments on the environmental assessment (EA) for trail improvements and additions to the Horseshoe Lake Trail.
We feel that wherever they are located, trails must allow visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in a natural setting with minimal distractions. Management to attain that goal in the entrance area of the park is challenging, but we believe it is vital to avoid diminution of park values.
Our comments centered around three topics: habitat, safety and visitor experience.
