With a length of 61 km of Highway 27 is one of the shorter in British Columbia, Canada. The highway leads from Highway 16 at Vanderhoof north to Fort St. James.


About two kilometers west of Vanderhoof the route branches off of Highway 27 from Highway 16, the Yellowhead Highway to the north. After four kilometers of the Nechako River is crossed, the Highway runs further north to cross without major settlements. After another 46 km of the Stuart River, the outflow of Stuart Lakes is crossed. Two kilometers further extends the municipal boundary of Fort St. James, the northern terminus of the highway. The highway runs through the entire community and ends only with the northern boundary of the municipality. The road divides into two secondary roads, one of which (named North Road ) to Highway 97 (about 140 km ) and the other as Chief Teardrop Rd Lake ( about 120 km) leads.
