  “If you're driving to Alaska from the South 48, you need The Milepost. Don't argue, just go get one. NOW!”
Dana Stabenow, Alaska magazine

One of North America's most famous roads sparked creation of one of publishing's longest-running guides. The Alaska Highway was a rugged road when it opened for tourist traffic in 1948, and facilities were few and far between. On such a road, a reliable guidebook was essential, and in 1949, The MILEPOST® was born.

Today, The MILEPOST® is a large format, full-color, perfect-bound book of almost 800 pages and includes logs of attractions, activities and services along 88 scenic highways and roads in Alaska, Yukon Territory and other parts of Western Canada. Public road mileage in Alaska today-including all city streets-is about 14,400 miles. The MILEPOST® logs all major highways and most secondary roads, from the 1,488-mile Alaska Highway (the longest road logged) to the 1.6 mile Anchor River Road (the shortest road logged).

Today's MILEPOST also has an extensive Inside Passage section for cruiseship and ferry travelers; detailed coverage of air access, cities and major attractions such as Denali and Glacier Bay national parks; and a general information section on everything from Alaska's three types of bears (where to see them and how to avoid them), to when to go and what to wear.
