Perry River is a well-maintained Crown Land forest road. Most of the way, it is a single lane with thick trees and vegetation. The road follows the Perry River as it winds through a glacial valley. The mountain views are amazing! There are cascading waterfalls down the side of Bourne Glacier to the east.

It is an easy road. Any high-clearance 2WD can make it. About 13 miles (21 km) from the start. There is a steep switch-back road up a mountain to a snowcat lodge. It’s worth the drive. While 4WD is convenient on this climb for traction, it’s not necessary. There is no guard rail and a very steep drop, but the resulting views are incredible! The side road is about 7 miles (11 km) each way.
