    You all are leaving too soon. Stay until the third week in August! You won’t regret it! Check out the old Kennecott mine. It is in Wragell St.Elias NP now. It is worth the trek back in to it.

      pswenson Is root glacier hike long/difficult? Hide 1 Reply
      • Hank & Shirleen
        Hank & Shirleen We did not have time to do it. But you can go about a mile past the mine and walk out on your own, or rent strap on cleats and go out with a tour group, for a fee of course.

      Happy Flyer Why do you guys think it's such a good idea to stay past the 3rd week of August?

        Antonia-Jane & Edouard Duroux Sorry not really sure one moment it’s paved one moment it isn’t & some of the paved bits are worse than unpaved bits due to pot holes etc.

      Maddog If you are talking about Tok cutoff....?. Between Glenallen and Tok the worst in all I have driven in AK. Go back thru Delta Junction on Richardson or back up to Fairbanks and across.
    • Bobby n Ann
      Don and Penny Bailie Agree with above, we could not believe how bad the Tok cutoff was.
    • Bobby n Ann
      MRJohnston The Tok (pronounced Toke) cutoff is frost heaves, not pot holes. Not so “ruff” as it is a roller coaster ride. Just. Slow. Down. Hide 2 Replies
      • Bobby n Ann
        Maddog Man, there was both .... holes and heaves. Heard the horror stories of roads and was pleasantly surprised everywhere in AK EXCEPT Tok Cutoff. I had to drive almost the entire length at 20-30 after hitting some really bad areas. Mike

        MRJohnston I live in Alaska and travel it routinely, so maybe I’m just used to it ?.
