A long road, on ice through beautiful country side! Well placed and visible markers (IF you need them) Beautiful scenery - away from everyone :) Just be aware - as all reviews and information on this road - the road is for the truckers - give them their space.

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!

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.

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