Kitwanga Junction to Yukon – 450 miles

The Stewart Cassiar Highway (Hwy 37) traverses through remote and beautiful scenery. The road is mostly paved except for one mile of gravel.

To visit Stewart, British Columbia, turn west at Meziadin Junction and take the Stewart-Hyder Access Road (Hwy 37A) for 38 miles. Stewart, a small town of 600 people, has an interesting historic element with many of the buildings dating from 1910 when the town was home to around 10,000 people. From Stewart you can drive two miles and cross the Alaska border into Hyder.

The three provincial parks with campgrounds, Meziadin Lake, Kinaskan Lake and Boya Lake Provincial Park are open from May 15 (or when the snow melts) to Sept 20. These parks offer a great base for exploring, fishing and boating. Boya Bay is one of the few lakes in the area where it is warm enough to swim.

There are several pull-outs around mile 25 with areas to view Bear Glacier.

At the junction of Stewart Cassiar Highway and Alaska Highway turn west and continue another 560 miles on Alaska Highway to reach the Alaska border near Beaver Creek, Yukon.
