Alaska’s vast areas of mostly uninhabited terrain make it the perfect place for stargazing…but there’s a catch. By the end of April, constant sunlight makes it all but impossible to see the stars. Now’s the perfect time to take a trip to one of the best places to view the heavens – Denali National Park.

For more information on visiting or camping at Denali during the winter, visit the park’s website.

While it’s not possible to enjoy starry skies in the summer, we’re definitely looking forward to warmer weather. Here are seven rail trails to explore this summer.
