Petersville Road: Sydney Laurence View of Denali (Mt. McKinley)

Just after Petersville (at Mile 34) the road gets rough, but you can head less than one mile to this turnaround where a “trail” heads into Denali State Park. It’s used by four-wheelers and looks like a road, but it does turn into a trail. Hike it, away from the mining activity and river, and you’ll see Denali. This view was made famous by Alaska landscape painter Sydney Laurence, who created the painting from his nearby cabin.
