My Public Lands Roadtrip: Dalton Highway in Alaska
The Dalton Highway starts north of Fairbanks, Alaska, and extends more than 400 miles north to the Prudhoe Bay. The highway is very much a working road, although tourist visits are still very high. The highway crosses through incredible scenery, including Mount Sukakpak, located 30 miles north of Coldfoot Camp. BLMer Bob Wick says of the Mount Sukakpak, “It is an iconic peak along the corridor and one of the most spectacular mountains I have ever photographed.”
The BLM manages much of the Dalton Highway corridor and has a number of popular wayside exhibits, an interagency visitor center and campgrounds.
