Gnat Pass/ BC Rail Grade

Gnat Pass/ BC Rail Grade

Gnat Pass, the highest point of the Stewart-Cassiar Highway at 4,071 ft, provides views of the old BC Rail grade. The unfinished rail bed through the wilderness now provides rough road access into some of BC’s remote interior. Note that the road is unmaintained.

Both Upper and Lower Gnat Lakes offer scenic and serene canoeing and fishing. Trumpeter swans visit the lakes during their spring and fall migrations. Several trails from the vicinity provide hiking and ski touring access to alpine areas. Northern Mountain caribou, wolves, bears, lynx, wolverine and eagles all inhabit the area.
