Wow. Truly takes your breath away. Talk with the locals. They will quantify for you how far back the glaciers receded in their lifetimes. Drive this in conjunction with your visit to Fish Creek Wildlife Observations Site.

We drove up from Hyder since it's only 18miles up a gravel road. We drive a Toyota Sienna and saw a Hyundai Veloster going up as we were coming down so it's not a difficult drive, just avoid the potholes and go slowly. Saw a...More

This is a must see if anywhere near to Stewart, BC. Fifth largest glacier in Canada. Rough mining road leads to the top but a good trip.

It is well worth the drive. We drove up to the lookout spot with the picnic table where you can view what the locals call " the toe". There was a rock slide preventing us from going further which will not probably be cleared for...More

The glacier is about 18 miles north from Hyder Alaska. The road up is winding and treacherous. Not for the weak, but the view up there is spectacular. It is a very large glacier and the ice fields are pristine. Be sure you choose a...More

We crossed with little formality. There is a US border post, but since you can't go anywhere but back into Canada, I'm not sure if they would be checking for visas. Being Canadian we did not require a visa, only our... More

Sorry missed the question earlier. It may be too late. If the road has been graded after winter you should be able to pick side to side to miss rocky outcrop. It's steep but not outrageous

I it quite narrow, steep and there are trucks coming down from the mine and work crews further up the mountain. I would not try it and the day we were up there I saw no motorhomes or large trucks.
