At a Glance

No huge dividends in S-curves. No blue-chip asphalt. No chart-topping vistas. This unassuming highway earns its DH listing the old-fashioned way, by sticking to the fundamentals: a respectable number of single curves, sound pavement, balanced scenery and not too much development. Running through a high valley, the road starts among the farms and fields surrounding the quiet settlement of Westwold before moving into the mature pine forests of the surrounding hills. Scenic highlights include a view over Monte Lake and a mountain panorama when the road drops down to the South Thompson River and meets the Trans-Canada (Hwy 1). Even though itís a major artery, this section of Hwy 97 should be included in your DH portfolio. Itís worth the investment.
