Paved highway from Anchorage to Seward; 127 miles (204 kilometers). The Seward Highway begins as a six-lane expressway that runs through the suburbs and shopping malls east of Anchorage. As the buildings and telephone poles fall away, the mighty inner peaks of the Chugach Mountains reveal themselves through glacier-carved gaps in the foothills. At the edge of town is Potter Marsh, a productive wetland ecosystem that offers habitat for wading birds and waterfowl. It was created when the railroad embankment dammed several sluggish streams at the edge of Turnagain Arm. A wooden causeway runs over the brackish marshland, and viewing platforms allow close observation of the silver, pink, and king salmon that spawn here. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
