The best guidebook to 46 trails in Wrangell St Elias National Park, straddling the Alaska Canadian border. Updated with new trails and new data.  
 
A comprehensive hiking guide book for the largest national park in the United States. Contains descriptions for 50 hikes, and a wealth of valuable hints and tips. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park which is located in south central Alaska encompasses 13.2 million acres of unsurpassed wilderness. The book also provides information for services available within and around the park including bus services, air taxis and guide services. Also includes contact numbers for visitor information including the national park and local communities.

About the Author: Danny Kost grew up in southern Indiana, and came to Alaska in 1984 on a two week vacation. During that vacation, he fell in love with the state. That first trip was a guided two-week glacier seminar on the Root and Kennicott Glaciers near McCarthy in the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. The next two years he was in graduate school, but returned to McCarthy to work as an apprentice and assistant guide each summer.

In 1987, he became a partner in St. Elias Alpine Guides based in McCarthy and spent the next five seasons guiding hiking and climbing trips within the park. He moved to Alaska full-time in 1989. In 1992, he gave up guiding full-time and returned to engineering and consulting work. However, he has continued to climb, hike and explore the park. He has completed the first ascent of numerous peaks within the park including Mts. Anderson, Tittmann, and The Presidents Chair. Mr. Kost has also hiked and climbed in the eastern, central and western United States, Canada and Switzerland. He splits his time between Anchorage and his cabin in McCarthy.
