Haines Road

The Haines Highway (still called the "Haines Road" by locals) connects Haines Junction, Yukon to Haines, Alaska. The road follows a traditional route used by the Chilkat Tlingit traders and later the prospectors of the Klondike Gold Rush, winding along the Chilkat River coming from Haines before ascending the Chilkat Pass and meandering along the edge of the scenic St. Elias mountain range. The well-maintained road is about 244 km (152 mi) long and crosses the U.S.-Canadian border. No services are offered along this stretch of road, so make sure you have enough gas and supplies.
