Paved highway from Fox to Mile 28, gravel road for remaining distance to Manley Hot Springs; 152 miles (245 kilometers) overall. This gravel road runs northward through the forested high country of the Yukon-Tanana uplands and then jogs westward to reach Manley Hot Springs. The road is paved as far as Wickersham Dome, is broad and graveled as far as Livengood, and becomes narrower with some twists and turns in the final stretch. It provides access to the Dalton Highway at Livengood and parallels the Trans-Alaskan Pipeline to this point. The Elliott traverses an empty quarter of the state that retains much of its primeval wilderness character. Service stations are a rarity; you can get gas at Mile 5.5, at Minto, and at Manley Hot Springs. The road is passable in all weather, but the final stretch between Livengood and Manley Hot Springs may become potholed following rainstorms. 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.
