Welcome to Alaska Public Lands Information Centers. The Corridor is your guide for travel between Alaska's two largest cities, Anchorage and Fairbanks. These cities boast of vastly differing characteristics: Anchorage is the busy commercial hub of Alaska industry and travel while Fairbanks embraces it's heritage as a historic gold rush city; Anchorage is a coastal city on Cook Inlet and Fairbanks is in the heart of the Interior.
As you travel this 358-mile-long corridor, you will experience some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United States. The highway provides access to many of the 325 million acres of public land in Alaska, including Denali state and national parks as well as views ofMount McKinley, North America's highest peak.
The Alaska Public Lands Information Centers located in Anchorage and Fairbanks are but two of the four centers authorized by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980. Additional information centers are located in Ketchikan and Tok. These centers help to inform, educate and assist travelers in planning their Alaska experience.
