Hi, I wondered how far you are from Denali Park and if there is any transportation to and from your cabin. We will be taking the train.,

Soldotna is a three hour drive South of Anchorage. Closest train gets to Soldotna is Whittier, I believe. You would need to rent a car or take a bus from ANChorage.
