At a Glance

Some recent repaving suggests this quiet, historic road through the old mining towns of the Lower Similkameen may be getting a new life. It’s hard to imagine a better beneficiary of the Ministry of Highways’ largesse. After crossing a wide grassy plain, this winding DH cuts steadily along the steep mountainsides overlooking the Tulameen River. The most appealing thing about this dead ender is the way its many curves mix and combine. Your right wrist will get a workout as the road fluctuates from tight and twisty to open and sweepy. Less appealing are the gravel moments brought to you courtesy of careless pylons spitting up pebbles from the soft-shouldered corners. The rock falling from the crumbling cliffs doesn’t help either. However, both are a small price to pay for an otherwise first-rate ride. And to the Ministry, just pave it, don’t straighten it, O.K.?
Riders Reviews:

"I ride this road every year on my Guzzi V11S to my father in law's cabin and it's always fun. Fond memories also of my first ever solo ride on a motorcycle was on this strech of road and came back with a perma grin!" --Zoltan C

"Great road, bit bumpy in places but the "Bonneville" likes to shake it up as much as I do sometimes. Turn around at Otter Lake and do it all again backwards! Watch out for the gravel!!" --Dave J
