Hyder Alaska, The Southern Most Alaskan City Accessable by Land
There is a place to stay in Hyder (although it is quite rustic), there is a RV Park and a few Places to eat. We had been planning to go here since I first noticed it on a map. What is also interesting is Hyder is close to Ketchakan as the bird flys, it seems logical that a ferry should run between Hyder and Ketchakan but it does not.
Hyder is an experience that is worth the trip off the main road. A winding road (in good shape) takes you around glaciers allong the river until you reach the border. The town itself is small and adjacent to a larger town in BC. We were told that you have to be careful when walking around town because of the bears that also walk around town.
