Glacier Highway and Granduc Road Side Trip Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A paved highway from a junction with the Cassiar to Hyder, Alaska; 66 kilometers (41 miles). The Glacier Highway is a short, well-paved spur road that connects the Cassiar Highway with Stewart, British Columbia, and Hyder, Alaska. The highway crosses the Coast Mountains, and you can see more than twenty glaciers from the road. The Bear Glacier descends almost to the roadside and is considered by many to be the highlight of the trip. Stewart and Hyder are quiet villages on one of the long fjords that carry salt water from the Pacific far into the mountains.

There is a weekly ferry that links Stewart with the Alaska Marine Highway system. From Hyder, an improved gravel road climbs high into the mountains, revealing magnificent glacial vistas and visiting old silver and copper mines. 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."
