At a Glance

Sometimes you have to give the Minister of Highways credit. For many years, this route through the Interlakes region of the Cariboo Plateau was the bane of motorcyclists who donít believe in gravel. From 93 Mile House, it tempted them with smooth asphalt, spacious curves and a lack of traffic only to betray them at its eastern end with a long, steep, gravel section down to Little Fort in the North Thompson River valley. A few years ago however, the Minister managed to slip one by the health and education crowd and found the dosh to pave this missing link into a wonderful, high-speed sweepfest. Good job, Minister. Now, what have you done for us lately?
Riders Reviews:

"The best way to enjoy this stretch of madness is to start from the Little Fort end. The first 10 km is the best part of the ride... steep uphill x2 lanes with long sweeping corner after corner. Recommended speed: as fast as yer scooter can go..or you can handle." -2fast4u

"The section from the top of the hill above Little Fort to the west end of Lac De Roche was repaved in the summer of 2002. Most of this road is winding, no real blind corners and now has reasonable (by BC standards) pavment with little traffic. Great in the PT Crusier but am looking forward to it on the Beamer GS."
-Brian Chappell
 

"Finally, the east end is now paved!! There is aprox. 45-50km of newish pavement as well from the top of the hill west. Slow down and enjoy the view I know IT'S HARD TO DO because it's built to run." -C.W. Lawson

"I recently moved up here from the Lower Mainland and found this road while pulling a trailer behind my SUV repeating the phrase "Where the hell is my Buell!" -Matt Parsons
