about this item

The MILEPOST® is Alaska's best known and most extensive travel guide. It was first published in 1949 as a 72-page mile-by-mile guide to the Alaska (“Alcan”) Highway, which had been opened to the public in 1948. The 2017 edition has 704 pages of detailed travel information on 30 major routes—including the Alaska Highway, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year—and 60 side trips, totaling more than 15,000 miles of road in Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, British Columbia and Alberta. In honor of the Alaska Highway's anniversary, the 2017 edition includes a History of the Alaska Highway, along with special features and photos from our historical archives.

The “quintessential reference” to Alaska travel, The MILEPOST® offers mile-by-mile descriptions of all highways, with details on accommodations, camping, sightseeing, attractions and services, as well as fascinating facts on the history and wildlife of the North. Trip planning help and answers to frequently asked questions are addressed in the Travel Planning section, with features on crossing the border, traveling with pets, the Alaska ferry system and suggested itineraries.

The MILEPOST® includes more than 100 city and road maps; the wildly popular pull-out Plan-A-Trip Map; more than 600 photos; and free access to a digital edition of the book.
