Mount McKinley National Park is located 250 miles south of the Arctic Circle. The park is home to 132 species of birds and 37 species of mammals, including grizzly bear, timber wolves, and barren ground caribou. Over 3,000 square miles of the park surround Mt. McKinley, which is the highest mountain in North America at 20,320 feet.
 
“Top of the Continent” – Mount McKinley
Mount McKinley is located in south-central Alaska, in the Alaska Range of mountains. It has the highest peak of any mountain in North America, which has earned the mountain the nickname, “Top of the Continent.” The mountain actually has two peaks – the South Peak, which measures 20,329 feet high, and the North Peak, which rises 19,470 feet. The mountain was named after U.S. President William McKinley, who served from 1897 to 1901.
 
Mount McKinley National Park was established in 1917. The Native Americans call Mount McKinley Denali, which means “The Great One.” In 1980, the name of the park was changed to Denali National Park. About 30 kinds of animals live within Denali’s protected lands, including grizzly bears, moose, caribou, Dall’s sheep, and red and silver foxes. In addition to Mount McKinley, there are over 300 other high mountain peaks in Denali National Park.
 
Although several parties previously claimed to have climbed Mount McKinley, the mountain was not successfully scaled until 1913, when Hudson Stuck, Harry P. Karstens, and two companions climbed to the top of the South Peak.
