The Cassiar Highway knives through mountain-river-lake-glacier country.
There are several communities enroute.

This area of British Columbia and Alaska is one of the most beautiful you will visit on your trip north.
Long renowned for its glaciers and waterfalls, one of the top attractions still has to be the friendly people.
The Cassiar Highway 37 originally was a combination of logging and mine haul roads.
The highway has been improved, however, and for the most part has been realigned.
Although there are some sections still under construction, the road is fine for campers, motorhomes and vehicles towing trailers.
Some services listed in the following highway log are not open all year.
Fill your tank at all opportunities and you will have no problems.
