Pivot Point parking area with "Shot Rock"...
Mile 2.2 past the Weigh Station. A secluded area that usually free of the noise of the highway. Usually relatively wind free as well. Can be dry if it is raining due to the tree cover and angle of the rock. Usually shady and if it is nice out you can count on seeing at least one other party.
At mile 2.2 from the weigh station you will see a large grassy ramp. Turn around if coming from Anchorage and park off the road a bit. Head up the faint trail until it forks. Pivot Point is the right area once you reach the fork and upper pivot point is another 5 minute hike up the left fork.

Note: Even though this route appears solid, it is still on the Highway and susceptible to freeze and thaw breakage. As a note the grade became more solid after I pulled a 12 pound (was an undercling pinch) block off just ...[more] Browse More Classics in AK

Having heard horror stories of bad rock along the highway, I was amazed by the quality of rock at this area--although not the most textured rock, certainly worth the time of checking it out.
