Above - Facing east along the Denali Highway (Hwy 8) from the George Parks Highway (Hwy 3) Junction near Cantwell. The Denali Highway continues east for 135 miles, climbing over Maclaren Summit to Paxton. The highway ahead is only paved for a few miles - the majority of Hwy 8 is still gravel-surfaced. The Denali Highway is closed to traffic in winter, typically between October and May. At an elevation of 4,086 feet above sea level, the Denali Highway's Maclaren Summit is the second-highest highway mountain pass in Alaska. The highest mountain pass in Alaska is Atigun Pass (Elevation 4,800 feet) through the Brooks Range on the James Dalton Highway (Hwy 11). See an Enlarged Photo Here.
