B.C.-Alaska Border Along the
Glacier Highway 37A
A 65-kilometre route leaving Highway 37 at Meziadin Junction takes you through stunning scenery, provides up close looks at remnants of avalanche activity in Bear Pass and takes you past Bear Glacier and into the town of Stewart.
Historic buildings and museums provide a glimpse into Stewart’s mining past. Drive through Stewart and you will arrive at the international B.C.-Alaska border. On the other side is Hyder, the most southerly town in Alaska, U.S. Ensure you have appropriate documentation for re-entry into Canada.
Telegraph Creek Road
This winding route travels 115 kilometres (71 miles) southwest from Dease Lake through breathtaking canyons, and follows the Stikine River to the historic community of Telegraph Creek. Many of the original buildings from the gold rush days of late 1800s remain, including the former Hudson’s Bay Company store. The road has very steep grades, up to 20 per cent, and a gravel surface. Drivers are urged to use extreme caution and allow 2.5 to three hours each way. There are limited facilities in this area so call ahead for overnight stays. RV trailers are not recommended for this trip.
The Stewart-Cassiar Highway ends where it meets the Alaska Highway just west of Watson Lake, Yukon. To get to Atlin B.C., you must travel west, approximately 430 kilometres from this junction, through Teslin, Yukon, turning left onto Tagish Road (Yukon Highway 8) and south to Atlin Road (Yukon Highway 7). Atiln is 90 km south of the Alaska Highway. Check ahead for accommodations and services. This mining town, rich in history and restored buildings, depicts life in the late 1800s.
