The route starts at the US Customs Station and ends at the junction of routes 2 and 4 in Delta Junction. At Tetlin Jct. is the turnoff for the Taylor Hwy. which leads to Chicken Alaska.
The route winds it way through the Alaskan Wilderness. There is abundant wildlife such as Bears, Moose, and Caribou, all through Alaska to be seen and to be wary of on the road. There are many scenic pulloffs to take in the grandeur of Alaska
The pavement is generally very good here. The route is hilly in spot with long sweepers mixed in with some straight sections. There may be some frost heaves or gravel breaks mixed in also.
The only big town along the route is Tok. You can get somethimg to eat, some gas, a beer and a place to sleep. Delta Jct. is the "official" end of the Alaska Hwy. Good photo spot and souvenir stop.
It's a fairly well kept road, especially by far north standards. Mostly sweeper curves with some hills added in. Tok is a good hub to explore in all directions. Delta Junction is a good photo op and we had our first sighting of Denali mountain there.
