Well worth the stop to see on your way to somewhere. I learned a lot of information about how difficult it was to build etc.

It's a very interesting piece of history and it's not very far outside of Fairbanks so on our way to Denali we stopped to see for ourselves! There are a few signs describing the Pipeline and it's not fenced off - you can touch it, pose for a photo and check it off your bucket list!

We visit the Alyeska Pipeline while in Alaska. It was very interesting to learn of the creation and operation of the Pipeline. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

But we did! It was very interesting to look at and read about how large this project really was. The pipeline itself is pretty big and must be impressive to view from above.

This is an easily accessible stop (or pullout) along the Steele Highway. It is a very short walk up to the display boards and the pipeline itself. The display boards have interesting info and there are examples of "pigs" that were used in the construction of the pipeline. Interesting facts about how they deal with the cold temps in the...

Coldest day of our March visit to Fairbanks... 26 below zero when we visited this spot. Our fingers were instantly freezing allowing little time to get a few photos! But we persisted, read the sign boards and looked at the pipe, then crawled back in our friend's truck (she's lived in Fairbanks for 30+ years) and agreed it was a... More

This is a very interesting stop to see and learn about the pipeline that is an engineering marvel. You can walk a portion of the pipeline and the signs give a very interesting background of the engineering details and challenges of its creation. I am glad I went and given that it is a quick pullover from the side of... More

Great stop with my groups. This winter they're not keeping it plowed but it is still accessible. The trans alaska pipeline is the greatest engineering accomplishment of the last century. $8 Billion in 1978 and all privately funded.

Right off the highway. Such a neat thing to see... an easy walk even in the snow.. you can walk right up to it and reach out and touch the pipeline!
