Improved gravel road from Dease Lake on the Cassiar Highway to Telegraph Creek; 119 kilometers (74 miles). This improved gravel road links Dease Lake on the Cassiar Highway with the historic settlement of Telegraph Creek, at the head of navigation on the Stikine River. The road has some steep and narrow sections with incredibly tight curves. Passenger vehicles should be able to negotiate it without difficulty in dry weather, but rain turns the surface to slippery mud and some of the grades may become impassable. The road is too narrow and winding to accommodate RVs or vehicles pulling trailers. The road was built in 1922, making it one of the oldest auto routes in the Far North. 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.
