However much of the Alaska highway you do it will be an adventure. Yes in parts the road is bad. At one point we had over 80 miles of roadworks driving on grit. There is a long section before Beever Creek in Yukon. Take it slow and be careful and you will enjoy lots of fab scenery along the way. Twice in one day we saw bears by the side of the road eating. Lots of lakes and walks to do. Also places to fill up with gas and get a coffee.
