Tokosha Mountains is a granitic massif located in southern Denali National Park. It's situated between the toes of Tokositna and Ruth Glaciers. With its many impressive granitic spires, the Tokosha massif has been compared to the Tetons. The highest peak, 6148 feet, is called Grand Tokosha in keeping with the Teton comparison. Tokosha Peak is another alternate name. The name Tokosha means "place where there are no trees" in the Tanaina language. That name was applied in 1906 by explorer/mountaineer/author/artist Belmore Browne. The mountain is infrequently climbed due to difficult approach, in spite of its prominent visibility from the Parks Highway (Hwy 3) at the Denali View South pullout.
