 Since this was our second time visiting Wrangell St Elias, we decided to bring my sister and a few friends so they could see just how incredible this national park really is. While our old pictures captured some of the majesty, we knew everyone needed to see it for themselves.

 Wolverine Peak may be difficult, but it leads to incredible views. We saw dall sheep and a moose on the way up too. This hike took us about 7 hours round-trip with multiple breaks and a lovely dinner on top of the peak. If you walk briskly you could probably finish the hike in 4-5 hours. The final mile at the top was super intense, but well worth the struggle.
