There is just a pull off the road to this viewing point, but it's very cool to see and touch the pipeline! There aren't any bathrooms here, so plan ahead~ We were only there for about 30 minutes, but I'm really glad we made the...More
Short of stopping on the side of the Dalton Highway to see the pipeline this is as close as you'll get to this historic part of Alaska. You can actually tough the pipe covering, read about its hisroty and making, and view items related to...More
I stopped by the pipeline viewpoint a few days ago. Unfortunately it hasn't been the same since Alyeska(the company that owns the pipeline) pulled the visitor's center out of this location. As I used to give tours out there, I was able to pass on...More
This is a super quick stop with an easy pull off/pull onto the highway parking area. It's a short walk into the tree area to come out on the other side at the Trans Alaskan Pipe System. You can marvel in the engineering of such...More
We stopped by the pipeline to visit. There were billboards giving some history of the pipeline and you could get some great family pictures along the pipeline. It is a quick stop and worth it to see the pipeline up close.
Stopped by after church and really enjoyed seeing the pipeline and the two pigs that used to clean out the inside of the pipeline. Signs give great information about the history of the pipeline and there is plenty of parking.
Much of the pipeline is underground but this section just outside Fairbanks is where it is above the ground. They have some signs telling about the history of the pipeline. Luckily since I was on a tour we got to listen to our guide as...More
It's a roadside stop. No buildings, visitor center, etc. Just a parking lot. An informative signboard. And a section of the pipe that you can walk up to and under before it goes underground. Short drive from town. I'm glad I did it.
24/7. It's on a pullout off the Steese Hwy, north of Fairbanks. Park your car, walk across a small bridge & there is the pipeline, along with signs that explain the history, etc. Can be seen from the road & accessed all... More
24/7. It's on a pullout off the Steese Hwy, north of Fairbanks. Park your car, walk across a small bridge & there is the pipeline, along with signs that explain the history, etc. Can be seen from the road & accessed all the time. There is no enclosed building.
There's an exhibit about the pipeline in the Museum of the North at the Univ. of AK at Fairbanks. That site and the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center are both excellent sources of information about AK & Fairbanks.
