    I'm planning an one week trip to Anchorage region and for distances reason, will need to stay in Talkeetna for at least one night.
    I can stay for another day if there is some interesting spot to ride to in the region, before head back to Anchorage and end the ride.
    Any info from the region guys ?

    I agree.... fly to Denali if the weather is clear enough.

    maybe give us the route that you have planned and your intention... sight seeing or just putting on some Ks. guessing that you are doing Denali Highway & stopping in Talkeetna. if so, you would have seen the Matanuska valley & glacier and probably the Denali view points (which are worth seeing when the weather is clear).

    otherwise go south for a day ride to Seward, Hope, or Kenai peninsula.
