Susitna River, Alaska

The Susitna River is a 313 mile long river in south central Alaska. The river stretches from the Susitna Glacier, in the Alaska Range, to Cook Inlet. The McKinley Explorer train from Anchorage to Denali National Park runs parallel to the Susitna River providing gorgeous views along the entire route. The Susitna River was named by the Dena’ina Alaska native people meaning “sandy river”.
