At a Glance

Where have all the pylons gone? Sometimes it feels like it’s just you and the speed tax collectors cruising this section of the Trans-Canada. Since the construction of the Coquihalla (Hwy 5), this piece of Hwy 1 across the sprawling Thompson Plateau has become almost a secondary route. And what traffic remains is veiled by the constant passing lanes. As part of Canada’s national highway, this DH was designed to meet the country’s national standards of mediocrity. So resign yourself to lots of mild bends and straightaways. But this milquetoast road can throw its share of real curves at you, too-- no more so than on the perfectly pitched and twisty climb east out of the laketown of Savona. With the number of cars and trucks on this DH reduced, the STCs may be wondering where they should go. We have a suggestion.


Your Reviews:
"I am disappointed that this road didn't get a higher rating. She is simply better than 69th. It is very open and you can see an STC coming for miles. The part along the lake is nice. Get her up to 160+ and there are curves... traffic is light." --Tom Badry
