Welcome to Glenn Highway
In a state with no shortage of amazing road trips, the Glenn is one of Alaska’s most jaw-dropping drives, running through mountain valleys that look as if they were freshly carved by a higher power. Appropriately, most of this corridor has been declared a National Scenic Byway. Along the route, outdoor opportunities abound: great alpine hiking around Eureka Summit, easy access to the humbling Matanuska Glacier, and some of the state’s best white water in the nearby Matanuska River. Note there is a 5% bed tax in this area.
