Which National Park has the highest elevation? What about the lowest?
The Highest & Lowest US National Park
The top three highest elevation National Parks are all in Alaska. Denali National Park‘s Denali Peak stands at over 20,300 ft (6,100 m) above sea level. It is the highest point in North America, edging out Mount Logan in Canada by over 700 ft.

Mount Logan in the Kluane National Park Reserve is the highest peak in Canada, standing 19,541 ft (5,956 m) high.
The next four highest Canadian National Parks are all within the Canadian Rockies as Jasper, Banff, Yoho and Kootenay round out the top 5. We actually developed a road trip that visits 3 of the 4, but you could easily add in the last one if you added an extra day.
I love traveling the United States. I hunt down fantastic places to visit in the summer and great slopes to ski down in the winter. The first national park I ever visited was the Smokies, but since then, I've been to dozens. However, my favorite by far has been Zion.
