Taylor Highway

From its start near the Tanana River to its end at the Yukon River, the Taylor is a highway built around, next to, over, and because of rivers. It provides travelers with unparalleled access not only to the mighty Yukon but also the Fortymile Wild and Scenic River, a watercourse that has shaped this region in ways as deep as the valleys it has carved through the Yukon-Tanana Uplands. Travel the Taylor Highway's twisty path, and you'll pass through some of the state's most interesting history while enjoying gorgeous scenery along the way. 

Some travelers follow the Taylor Highway to its end in the historic village of Eagle, home of historic Fort Egbert. Others turn off at its junction with the Top of the World Highway, which continues into Yukon Territory and the Klondike Gold Rush town of Dawson City. Either way, be prepared for an unforgettable trip through the Fortymile country.
