The route starts in Delta Junction at the junction of Routes 2 and 4 and continues to Fairbanks.
On a clear day you can see Denali, the highest mountain in North America from Delta Jct. and in numerous spots and pulloffs along the route. The route parallels the Tanana River all the way to Fairbanks. You pass Eielson AFB along the way.
The pavement on this route is generally very good. Mostly long sweepers mixed with long straight sections. Mostly flat with a few hills mixed in.
If you're going to ride the Alaska Highway, you need to stop at the Official end of the Alaska Highway marker for a picture and mementos. Then stop in North Pole where everything is Christmas themed. If you're a Harley rider you can end the route at Farthest North Outpost for any souvenirs or parts you need.
This route has two different sections within it. The first part out of Delta Junctions is hilly with mostly sweepers and some beautiful views. You will see Denali along the way on a clear day. The latter half towards Fairbanks is straighter and faster. The road is in pretty good shape for this far north. North Pole is a neat little Christmas themed town complete with candy cane street lights.
