Most of the roads up north follow the rivers and valleys.....just flatter and easer to cut thru. The Top of the world road is just a summer only road.. that has been made following the tops of the mountains (mostly rolling) so has some spectacular views. It is also MUCH short way to get to Tok than going back thru Whitehorse.
