Hope Junction (Mile 56.4): A Road Less Traveled

Turn here for a scenic drive to an off-the-beaten-path town that sits on the edge of Turnagain Arm. Established in the 1890's, it was one of the first gold mining towns in Alaska. Many of the town's original buildings are still standing, including the Seaview Cafe and Bar. There's still a hitching post in front of the mercantile, just in case you decide to bring your horse. Hope is also known to have suffered the some of the worst damage from the earthquake in 1964.
