The Stewart-Cassiar Highway (Highway 37) is the longest and most remote drive in the book, running nearly 500 kilometers (300 miles) through the vast wilderness of northwestern BC on its way to the Yukon. A more challenging drive than the famous Alaska Highway to the east, the Stewart-Cassiar is every bit as beautiful as it threads its way through endless forests, alongside wild rivers, and beneath the colorful Skeena and Cassiar Mountains.
Long stretches of gravel and the lack of services along the way make for an adventurous drive. Special attractions: Seeing deep wilderness from the security of a vehicle, excellent mountain scenery, potential wildlife sightings, the Iskut Lakes, the Stikine River, Dease Lake, the shortest route to the Yukon and Alaska from southern BC. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
