Before traveling the Taylor Highway please visit 511.Alaska.Gov or call 511 for the latest road conditions.
The Taylor Highway begins at Tetlin Junction on the Alaska Highway, 12 miles southeast of Tok, and ends at historic Eagle on the Yukon River. This is a beautiful “top of the world” drive.
The first 64 miles of the Taylor Highway are paved, with some sections damaged by mild to severe frost heaving. Road surface ranges from good to poor on the gravel portion, depending on maintenance. Rough spots are not always flagged. Shoulders are generally narrow and may be soft and unstable.
The Taylor Highway forks at Jack Wade Junction, Milepost TJ 95.7: the Boundary Spur Road goes east to the Top of the World Highway to Dawson City, YT; the Taylor Highway continues north to Eagle. Between Chicken and Eagle, the Taylor Highway is narrow, winding, gravel road with many steep hills and some hairpin curves.
