Northern Highways - Alaska, Yukon & Northern BC

Telegraph Creek Road photos



    The Telegraph Creek Road runs approximately 113 kilometers (70 miles) from Dease Lake, on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway, to Telegraph Creek. At Km 4.7 the pavement ends, then you cross over a cattle guard and head into the wilderness. The condition of the road varies dramatically according to the amount of recent rain, and the maintenance schedule - in wet weather it would be very difficult to ride even a dual-sport motorcycle on some sections of it that turn to a particularly slimy mud, and all but impossible for a cruiser.
