Synopsis General: The Denali fault is a major structural element in south-central Alaska, and accommodates a significant amount of the on-land deformation caused by the convergence between the northwestward-moving Pacific plate and the overriding North American plate. Underthrusting and subduction along the Aleutian Trench accommodates most of the plate convergence, but part of the.

The Alaska Range was formed in the Jurassic Age. In the axial part it is composed of intrusive rock (granodiorites); along the edges, of sedimentary rock.

The slopes are steep, rocky, and rugged. Railroads and highways have been built through the deep and sometimes rather broad valleys which cut through the Alaska Range.
