Applegrove to Passmore Powerline road

Well, ticked another one off of my to do list. I had always wanted to try the powerline road from Applegrove to Passmore.

This road is in the southern part of BC. If you cross on the ferry from Needles to Fauquier, instead of turning left to Nakusp, you turn right to Applegrove. It comes out in Passmore, on Hyway 6.

one KTM 950 Adventure
one Honda Transalp
three Suzuki V-stroms
one KTM 690 SM
one BMW 650 X-country

These bikes were all loaded up for camping so the handling was not the best!
























We met some dirt bikes and quads on the trail heading in the opposite direction.




This is beautiful country and this ride is definitely worth doing.

I love riding the powerline roads. It really amazes me some of the places those lines were strung into back in the day and the roads made to service them.
