At a Glance

Early explorers tried unsuccessfully to extract salt from the briny springs for which this island is named. They were on the wrong track. Salt Springís full of pure sweetness, at least when it comes to motorcycling. And the islandís northern circuit has a intriguing flavour all its own. Cruising through the colourful arbutus stands up the islandís west side, looping down through its pine forested mid-section, and twisting along the shore of St. Mary Lake, this DH captures many faces of this peaceful Gulf Island. You might even see some of Salt Springís famous lamb, grazing unsuspectingly in the rolling meadows. The only sour thing about this loop is that some of the pavement is a little rough in the upper reaches. Even then, the sweet curves you discover on this expedition are worth exploring.
