Smithers to Smithers Landing to Topley Landing then Topley.

What's this route like? Is it worth it or not? Thinking about it on my way back from Inuvik this next June. While were at it what's it like from Fort St James to McLeod Lake?

From what I remember the road is pretty good gravel to Smithers Landing. If you want there is a alternate turnoff to Granisle before you reach there. The view of Babine Lake is worth the trip, I think it is BC's longest natural lake. Lots of rustic campgrounds along the way, be aware of the bears.

Tis an awesome detour on large and easy FSR's. If you are going to do it, send me a message and i can join you on it..... if you want the company that is.

If you would like any other route planning in this neck of the woods just ask away!!

All the best!

Ft St James to McLeod Lake can be a fun trip. Mainly FSR type riding until you have to go up and over Mt Mackinnon. The road through Carp Lake park is kinda brushy but shouldn't be all that hard for a good bike.

Do you have any GPS tracks for that neck of the woods?? It is on my "to do" list as well.

Thanks.
