“A little Highway well traveled on.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

It's a small highway 1 lane sometimes 2. People go quite fast so just be aware of others pulling out of their driveways or turning off the road. Nice scenery along the way. Oh look a Moose!

“EASY AND BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Great highway as highways go. One of the main routes in and out of town. There is also an old Steese highway which was used before this bigger one was built.

We traveled this road several times during our stay. Beautiful mountains and great places to pull off and view the Northern Lights.

“Well maintained and the gateway to several attractions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We traveled the Steese Highway in March 2014 to go between Fairbanks, or resort, Taste of Alaska on the Chena Hot Springs Road, the Silver Gulch Brewery for dinner, and to connect with the road to Skiland for viewing the Aurora. Even in the snow, it is well maintained.

You can get some great views of the Northern Lights from the Steese. Make sure you bundle up and have your camera ready!
