Alaska's Haines Scenic Highway

39.7 miles: 0 hours, 53 minutes

Haines Highway (SR 7) takes you past eagles fishing for salmon on the wide, clear waters of the Chilkat River. Watch as these magnificent creatures soar high above the trees, into the mountainous wilderness. Step outdoors at a roadside pullout to breathe in the fresh air and listen to the bubbling river.


Haines Highway (SR 7) delves through the lush vegetation of Alaska's coastal rain forest. The route parallels the Chilkat River, often providing views of the river and its activities—rafting, canoeing and salmon trapping. The abundance of salmon draws thousands of bald eagles. Scenic vistas welcome the visitor to stop to absorb the quiet beauty of nature.
