Dalton Highway

Driving the Dalton Highway

by Lynn

Hey everyone! We hope this post finds everyone doing well, or at least as okay as we can be during this strange time our country is in. So let’s take a break from all the chaos and talk about the Dalton Highway!

Daryl has a lot of footage that he has gotten with the cameras over the last few months. Since his truck got shut down a couple of weeks ago, we have been working on finding a program that would work for us to start putting better stuff together for you guys, which is long overdue.

We searched and searched and could not find anything that had mile markers for the haul road (The Dalton Highway), so he wanted to show you the names of some places on the Dalton and the mile marker it’s at. We have included a timelapse video at the bottom as well. One of these days, we will get some footage that is not in warp speed, ha-ha. Since this is such a long stretch of highway, this is what we decided to go with for now. That video is at the end of this post.

Once you get out of Fairbanks, here are some places to stop as you get further away from the population:

Hilltop Truckstop

For fuel and great pies, stop at Hilltop Truck Stop at mile 5.5 on the Elliot Highway, just north of Fox, Alaska.

Yukon River Camp

Headed north, the next stop would be the Yukon River Camp. As you head down a steep wooden river bridge, you can find them on the left-hand side of the Dalton Highway at mile marker 56.

They have a restaurant, gift shop, rooms, fuel, and showers.

Coldfoot Camp

Next up is Coldfoot Camp in Coldfoot, Alaska.

The camp was initially established as a camp for the gold miners. Today it offers a restaurant, lodging, gift shop, and a Post Office, as well as a tour company.

This is your last stop until you reach Deadhorse!

Deadhorse, Alaska

Deadhorse is the end of the road for the Dalton Highway. Here you will find lodging, food, and fuel & showers. Alaska Airlines also runs out of Deadhorse.
