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.

I consider myself a geek so this was spot on. It gives you a feel of how big the pipeline is and the reason why it’s built that way. It’s a quick stop and not so far from Fairbanks

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.

We debated whether to drive out to this open air visitor's center but we're glad we did. Leaned lots about the how the pipeline is important to Alaska's economy. But it was more than an ad for big oil.

You can see the pipeline and read a sign about it. There is a "pig" that is used to clean out the pipe. That's about it. That said, there isn't any better place in Fairbanks to find out about the pipeline and to see it...More

This site was a very short section of the pipeline before it went underground, with a placard with a miniscule amount of information. Also, if you drive from Fairbanks to Glenallen, the route follows the pipeline and you can see miles of it. It interested...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... More
