We have some bad news. The best part of this DH lies in
the 50-kmh (30-mph) zone that has spread like a cancerous tumour almost
halfway up Okanagan Lake. And the speed tax collectors who cruise the
developed southern part of this road are anything but benign. Fortunately,
this DH’s symptoms include a narrow, shoulderless stream of curves
situated high along the unguarded cliffs of the lake’s west side.
Unfortunately, pavement quality can be unstable as you cut along tumbling
embankments and pine-forested bluffs. Although frequent water views are
excellent, you’re probably too busy picking your line through the next
corner to notice. This aggressive road doesn’t really go into remission
until you reach the top third—a lazy respite through flat country fanning
out beside the lake’s northern end. If our prognosis is correct, this
life-threatening DH is just what the doctor ordered.
"A great ride because its quite different from roads most of us get to ride. The
first half is slow, winding and hilly. RV's can spoil the fun. Try to find a place to pull off for a few minutes to create some space for
yourself to enjoy this road." -Rick Klassen
