The James W. Dalton Highway ( , also Alaska Route 11 or simply the "Dalton Highway" or "the Dalton") is a 414-mile (666 km) road running through central and northern Alaska. It is one of only two roads in North America which cross the Arctic Circle (the other being the Dempster Highway in Yukon, Canada). It begins at Mile 73 of the Elliott Highway (Alaska Route 2) 84 mi (134 km) north of Fairbanks and ends at Deadhorse near the Arctic Ocean amid the Prudhoe Bay oilfield. The road passes through boreal forests, across the Yukon river and the Arctic Circle, over the Brooks Range mountains, the Continental Divide at Atigun pass, and finally traversing the tree-less North Slope tundra to the Deadhorse and the Prudhoe Bay oilfields near the Arctic Ocean. While travel up the entirety of this road is quite an undertaking, the trip provides many rewards in views and experience of America's Arctic, its wildlife, and landscape.
