Rental Cars on the Denali Highway

Q: Can we drive our rental car on Denali Hwy Rte 8?

A: The Denali Highway runs 135 miles between Cantwell and Paxson and is a gravel highway with few services and few travelers. Most rental car companies do not allow travel on the Denali Highway. You can take the Glenn and George Parks highways to get to Cantwell. If Paxson is your destination you can take the Glenn and Richardson Highways. If Denali National Park is your intended destination you take the George Parks Highway to Denali and then the Denali Park road leads into the park. This road is only open to mile 15 for private vehicles. Travel further into the National Park is by bus.
