Description

The MILEPOST is the best-selling travel guide to Alaska and a "quintessential reference" for northern travelers. The MILEPOST includes mile-by-mile descriptions of more than 15,000 miles of road in Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, British Columbia and Alberta. Its 600-plus pages detail accommodations, camping, fishing, gas stops, restaurants, attractions and services found along the highways and byways of Alaska and western Canada. The guide''s Travel Planning section answers frequently-asked questions about travel in the North, including what you need to know about crossing the international border, traveling with pets, the Alaska ferry system, driving conditions, railroads, tours and wildlife. Suggested itineraries are mapped out to help travelers plan their trips.

The 2021 edition of The MILEPOST® is the 73rd edition of this classic annual travel guide, which was first published in 1949 as a 72-page guide to the recently opened Alaska ("Alcan") Highway. While the log of the Alaska Highway is still the foundation of this guide, it has been joined by dozens of connecting routes as well as newer roads, such as the Dalton Highway, the Dempster Highway and the recently opened road to Tuktoyaktuk. All highway logs, which are updated every year by field editors, include a look at the history of the route and often the natural history of the region. The Alaska Highway section includes a brief history of the Alaska Highway that is a poignant reminder of the scale of this project. The Alaska Highway was named an International Historical Engineering landmark in 1996.

The MILEPOST® has more than 100 city and highway maps; the wildly popular Plan-A-Trip Map; more than 600 photos; and numerous sidebar features of special interest. Print book buyers have free access to a digital edition.

At this writing, the Covid-19 virus pandemic "may" finally be winding down. Which means people can start traveling again. And Alaska remains the journey of a lifetime. As the editor of this year''s edition is quick to remind the would-be traveler, there have been lots of changes. If you are going to make the effort, plan ahead for best results.

Alaska and Northwest Canada are still underdeveloped compared to the lower 48 U.S. states and southern Canada. They offer the opportunity to experience the world as it was before urbanization. They are a place where wild animals still roam a landscape covered with forests, streams, lakes, mountains, tundra, and glaciers. It is still possible to spends hours, days or weeks in the wild, with minimal contact with other humans. There are no end of outdoor adventures involving fantastic hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, snow machining, dog sledding, fishing and hunting.

There are also less roads and way less tourist infrastructure than you might be used to. You''ll need the Milepost to find scarce gas stations, restaurants, stores and places to sleep with a roof over your head. What there is fills up quickly, especially in summer. Plan ahead to ensure a positive experience. The Milepost is that planning resource that most visitors and even locals need. This year''s guide comes with access to a digital edition.

The 2021 version of "The Milepost" is the 73rd edition, proof that it works, whether you''re arriving by road, sea or air. The Milepost offers a mile-by-mile travelogue, updated annually, for the main roads, along with maps, diagrams of some key towns, photographs and advertisements for attractions, accommodations, and other travel facilities. It includes small delights that might not make it into other guide books, like scenic overlooks of glaciers, or places to book a fishing trip. It includes the basics for the Alaska Marine Ferry System, operating on a reduced basis but still a great way to see Southeast Alaska from the water and take your vehicle with you. Use the digital link to get the updates.

The Milepost is most highly recommended. Don''t leave home without it.

We usually try to find an audio app to go along with our trips to National parks and have learned alot along the way. Not finding one for Alaska, I picked up this book and have been amazed with the amount of information included. Like "this is a dangerous intersection"; "watch for rough road"; "Moose seen in this area"; and many other helpful hints and must know items. Ive been highlighting and reading some of the notes and am anxious to get to actually use it while my group of 8 travel Alaska.

I did not have all the codes and so I called The Milepost staff 6 different times to try to get the correct code. 6 different times I was promised a call back. Never got 1 return call.

Minus one star for the annoying folding ad on card stock in the middle of the book. It really gets in the way and I had to cut it out. It should have never been allowed. But since it had to be there, It should have been perforated to remove it easier without risking damage to the book.
