Points of Interest

Elbridge Tru­man Bar­nett came to Alas­ka in the late 1890s like so many oth­ers did —look­ing for the gold dur­ing the Klondike Gold Rush.

The trail you see takes you back Cast­ner Glac­i­er. Just be on alert: this trail is also fre­quent­ed by ATVs and motorbikes.

This ranch is owned and oper­at­ed by two life­long Alas­ka res­i­dents whom open their land to hunts each year.

On the high­way across Alas­ka, it makes sense to have a dri­ve in. Open in the sum­mer, they serve burg­ers, fries and ice cream with a car hop tak­ing your order. Or if you want to stretch your legs, there’s a deck and lawn to lounge on while you eat. It’s pret­ty ordi­nary non-chain, fast food with good malts and a good old-timey feel.

Accord­ing to locals, this is the best ice cream in Alas­ka. It’s made by locals Don and Lois Lintle­man, using cream har­vest­ed from cows on their farm.

You’ll see some rocky out­crop­pings that are com­mon spots to see Dall Sheep, up on the rocks.

This fun gift shop offers an array of local prod­ucts — such as goat’s milk soap, can­vas prints, cal­en­dars fea­tur­ing local pho­tog­ra­phers, Alas­ka Flour Com­pa­ny prod­ucts, and more.

You’ll find friend­ly, local staff who are ready to answer ques­tions and help you with your trip, and it’s open year round. In a hur­ry? At least stop in to pick up a free trav­el guide or brochure.

There are 9 inter­net sta­tions avail­able for you to use. If you have your own device, wifi is avail­able from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Plants, organ­ic flours, hand­made prod­ucts (like pot­tery, bead­work, knit­ted goods, art­work, lip balms and salves), and his­tor­i­cal books about the area. Food stands, mean­while, brim with mar­ket favorites like soft pret­zels, hot dogs and fries.

Not only does this stop offer unique keep­sakes of your trip to Alas­ka, but you get a nice chance to meet and talk with a local who calls this part of the state home.
