Mountains in Denali National Park and Preserve are part of the Alaska Range, with several subsidiary ranges included within the overall Alaska Range. Mount McKinley (also known as Denali), is the highest peak in the park and the highest peak in North America at 20,320 feet (6,194 m) The names listed here reflect the official names in the USGS U.S. Board on Geographic Names database. They in most cases exclude subsidiary peaks of larger mountains — McKinley alone has dozens of prominent points above 15,000 feet. The final version of this list will include all named peaks in the park and preserve above 10,000 feet (3,000 m) and a selection of prominent named peaks of lesser height.
