Written Directions

Take the Taylor Highway Rt. 5 west out of Chicken, the road will turn shortly out of Chicken and head south towards its junction with Alaska Hwy Rt.2 in about 65 miles.


This is a winding hilly road through the heart of the Alaskan wilderness. Since the road is paved , you will have a little more time to take in the magnificent views. There are turnouts and pulloffs every couple of miles to stop , relax and take it all in. Some nice views of Mt. Fairplay if headed north.

Drive Enjoyment

For the most part the road is fully paved. You will come across some construction where the road will be dirt and gravel. There will also be some washboarding and potholes on the road. There are some grades of up to 9%.

Tourism Opportunities

Outside of Chicken there are no services on this road . Cell phone reception is spotty at best outside of Chicken. There are some campgrounds and fishing spots along the road. Being in the wilderness of Alaska there is abundant wildlife to be spotted like Caribou, Moose and Bears.

It's a nice hilly, scenic ride up to Chicken. The town of Chicken Alaska (pop 3} is a unique experience . There's a cafe to get some hot food, which was a must on a 40 degree July day. You can have a beer at the Chicken Bar and buy a souvenir or two.
