Paved highway from junction with Seward Highway to Homer; 142 miles (228 kilometers). This highway emerges from the Kenai Mountains and follows the lowlands along Cook Inlet southward to reach a spectacular end at the tip of the Homer Spit, which juts into Kachemak Bay. Along the way, it passes through one of the cradles of Russian America, visits the Kenai Peninsula’s legendary salmon streams, and offers access to numerous beaches along the coast. Much of the lowlands fall within the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, which was set aside as a moose range in 1941. Give these enormous herbivores the right-of-way when they cross the road. 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.
