At a Glance

If youíve already made the mistake of investing five bucks to discover that at anything less than 200 kmh (120 mph), the Coquihalla toll highway isnít much of a motorcycle road, donít despair. This DH offers a great escape from the Coqís monotony-- at no charge. Riding this surprisingly well-paved and well-engineered road south of Merritt, you avoid the toll surcharges extorted by the speed tax collectors who lurk like highwaymen on the parallel Coquihalla. Largely ignored by travelers and even by some mapmakers, little known DH19 traces the Coldwater River through a hidden valley of trees and grassy, golden fields. The road does get a little rough at the southern tip, and there is even 0.3 km (0.2 mi) of gravel just above the settlement of Kingsvale. But even with these minor flaws, this curvaceous backroad delivers a great return on your misspent fiver.
