The Denali Star Train runs roundtrip from Anchorage to Fairbanks until Sept. 18, when it is only southbound from Fairbanks. North of Talkeetna, the tracks veer away from the road system and into the backcountry Hurricane area with views of the snaking Indian River, the occasional remote cabin and the expansive sight of Hurricane Gulch from the top of a 296-foot bridge. Just south of Denali National Park, Broad Pass offers majestic views of the Alaska Range in all directions; north of the park, the train winds along Healy Canyon, following the curves of the Nenana River below.
