Scenic Drives

Paved and well-main­tained (with some rough patch­es in win­ter), this 125 mile dri­ve is a great way of see­ing Alaska’s back­coun­try. While it is a beau­ti­ful dri­ve year-round, locals have said their favorite time to take the Tok Cut­off is the fall and the spring, not only for the changes in flo­ra, but for the start of migrat­ing caribou!

Tay­lor High­way (Hwy 5) is open sea­son­al­ly from April to mid-Octo­ber. Con­di­tions of the road can range any­where between good to poor and depend heav­i­ly on weath­er and main­te­nance. Keep in mind that there are very lim­it­ed ser­vices or facil­i­ties avail­able along the road past Eagle.
