This Remote Road In Alaska Will Take You Into The Unspoiled Wild
In Western Alaska, the windswept Seward Peninsula is a uniquely beautiful place. Here the Kougarok Road (also known as Nome-Taylor Road) leads 86 miles north from Nome through the heart of the Kigluaik Mountains. In the summer, drive this remote road for a fantastic day trip to explore the beauty of this scenic area. There are trails to hike and mountains to see, as well as a few artifacts from the Gold Rush era. If you find yourself in Nome, drive the length of the Kougarok Road to see this incredible part of Alaska.
Kougarok Road begins at the edge of the Bering Sea, 1.6 miles east of Nome.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
