Welcome to Glennallen
Glennallen (the name is a combo of two early explorers: Edwin Glenn and Henry Allen) is a small, strung-out community that sits at the confluence of two of Alaska’s most important highways: the Glenn and the Richardson. Turnoffs for the Denali and Edgerton Hwys are also close by. Unfortunately this geographic importance has done little to enliven Glennallen’s appeal, which is limited to a gas station, a visitor center and a smattering of so-so eating and sleeping providers. If you overnight here, admire the views of the icy Wrangell Mountains, top up your gas tank and use the ATM, before heading off somewhere more interesting.
