This, the western-most section of the Yellowhead Highway, is a long and varied 350-kilometer (210-mile) drive through the Coast Mountains, linking the interior with the coast. Although the drive passes through mountain-dominated landscapes the entire way, there’s a lot else to see. The region has the best displays of northwest Indian culture in the whole province and the outdoor recreation possibilities are virtually unlimited. Prince Rupert, at the end of the drive, is the only access to the coast by road north of Bella Coola. The Yellowhead forms a key component of the Totem Land and Sea Circle Tour which covers a grand loop of BC by road and ferry. Special attractions: Numerous distinctive peaks, northwest Indian culture, a full range of outdoor adventure possibilities, the Skeena River, distinctive north coast scenery, the Pacific coast. 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.
