The Dalton Highway begins 84 miles north of Fairbanks on Highway 2 at Livengood and proceeds 414 miles practically straight north to Deadhorse and the oilfields of Prudhoe Bay. The vast majority of this highway is dirt and it is frequented by trucks in both directions supplying the oil industry to the North. Tourists using the road should beware of the fast moving trucks. The southern part of the road is hilly and gravel, and it then levels out in many parts. It is not recommended for RVs, motorhomes or trailers and a four wheel drive vehicle would be useful. The road, although open all year for trucks, should not be attempted in winter for tourists. Stops, gas and food are very far between as are services. The most popular tourist destination on the road is the Arctic Circle, about 130 miles from its southern end. There is dry camping at the Arctic Circle. Have plenty of supplies with you for you, your dog and your vehicle.
