Turnagain Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 300m (984ft) above the sea level, located in the U.S. state of Alaska.
The road to the summit is asphalted. It’s called Seward Highway. The pass is the gateway to the Kenai Peninsula and the Chugach National Forest. It is an ideal location to witness the tremendous power that glaciers have had on the landscape.
This road is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. The road was completed in 1951 and runs through the scenic Kenai Peninsula, Chugach National Forest,Turnagain Arm, and Kenai Mountains. The pass is a popular winter recreation area for skiers, snowshoers, and snowmobilers. Brown bears (grizzlies) occur in the area.
