Eight miles north of Stewart along Highway 37A is Clements Lake Recreation Site. From May to October Clements Lake offers good opportunities for picnicking, canoeing, camping and a sandy beach for swimming.
From Hyder you can also reach Salmon Glacier, the fifth largest in Canada and a spectacular sight. The glacier is a 25-mile drive along Granduc Road that starts in Hyder at sea level and follows the Salmon River to its birthplace, the Salmon Glacier, a climb of 4,300 feet into the British Columbia alpine. The view is mesmerizing as you can gaze down on Salmon Glacier and the valley it has carved. During the drive you pass several old gold mines including the famous Premier Gold Mine - now called Westmin Gold-, which has been in operation off and on since the 1920s.
Preserving both Stewart and Hyder's history is this museum in downtown Stewart. Open from May through September, the Stewart Historical Museum has exhibits that trace Hyder from its heyday. There are also display with a collection of movie props from Hollywood movies that have been filmed in the area including “Insomnia,” “Bear Island,” “Iceman” and “Leaving Normal.”
