If you like ‘em long and fast, we highly recommend this lightly travelled 127.0 km (78.7 mi) jaunt. Although straightish at the start, this well-engineered road becomes progressively twistier as you go along. Starting off in the flatland along the Kettle River, you soon switch to the remote and rugged terrain of the West Kettle River Valley. You negotiate rocky slopes, slim canyons and forested plateaus as this DH follows the river to its source high in the mountains. At the top, the pavement spills over the summit and makes a dramatic descent into the Okanagan Valley. The road surface is consistently good to excellent. We expect your mood will be too.
