If you get to Bralorne, make sure that you continue to the end of the road, to see the old mine site.
A nice diversion, east of Goldbridge, is the logging road N of Tyaughton lake.
Take Mud Creek fsr, through the deep valley, up the other side, turn right at the top, to Marshall Lake area. 40 km of unbelievably sweet road, angling back to Carpenter lake.

Bruce, those are the dates

Not sure if you saw that the meet-up is the Galaxy Cafe @ Brittania Beach Tuesday 11:00. The rest of us likely will be coming off the 08:30 ferry from Nanaimo.

Would that be the one that passes Marshall & Carol Lakes? Done that one 3 times now, excellent.

I was also thinking about following McGilvray Pass (past the "old mine" of Pioneer) to its end. There are also many other in & out roads along Downton Lake, Slim Creek, Noel Creek, & West Hurley to think about.

I lived in Bralorne as a kid & have a self imposed bucket list to cover every road in the Valley sooner or later.

Yup & yup!

Come ride with us Tuesday, 11:00 at the Galileo cafe in Brittania Beach. Many of us will be on the 08:30 ferry from Departure Bay to Horseshoe Bay, docking around 10:05. Should easily be in Brittania by 11:00.

My sweetie and I are planning on heading out this Sunday on a ride up over Hurley and beyond. I have not been over it on a bike so just wanted to verify she could make it on her GS 650 twin. We did highline to Lillooet then through the Gang ranch up to Williams lake, hope to play around and maybe get some of the route sheet for this years BC ride that just happened. THKS

no problem on the GS. It is bumpy.
I would recommend turning off the Hurley, going towards Braylorne, a very interesting place.
