JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Visitors can now drive their private vehicles into Denali National Park and Preserve, weather permitting.

The park says the 92-mile road will be open to private vehicle traffic up to mile 30, the Teklanika Rest Area. But park officials urge visitors to call ahead for conditions because weather this time of year can change quickly.

Shuttle buses operate during the busy summer season, providing the primary means by which visitors can see the park. The buses recently stopped running for the year.

The park says vault toilets will be available at the Mountain Vista Trailhead, Savage River parking area and Teklanika but other facilities west of headquarters, including campgrounds, will be closed for the season.

The Bear Loop of the Riley Creek Campground will be open for camping.
