Big BC Dualsport Loop Part 1

This is a 14 day, maybe more depending on how hard you like to push. The tracks are divided into 2 parts as they would not upload here due to size limits.

This starts in Calgary and heads south via mostly gravel to hwy 3 (briefly) before ducking south on gravel again, only touching pavement when absolutely necessary. The POI's have been split between part 1 and 2 as well.



The Highlights include:

532 to the "Hump"

The Trunk road.

Dutch creek Road.

Corbin to Elko.

Baynes Lake to Moyie

West Harrison road to Pemberton.

Just wondering why you would not go Gold Bridge past Pemberton? Cool little town and Bralorne mine is quite interesting.

Other than, I've been there, done that. I took the connector that goes from the mine to Hurley pass. It was quite exciting since I had a scary run in with a Grizzly. There are much better rides in the area, like Highline road.


Goldbridge Hotel.


Bralorne.


Hurley Pass.

Sorry no bear pictures, I didn't have time to pull out the camera

Thank you!

I was just following your lines on Google maps/earth south of Calgary as you work your way toward Hwy 3. Some of that must be quite dramatic.

Any idea what the totals of paved and non-paved are?

My passport is current!

Calgary to Hwy 3 is about 80% gravel and although it might seem dramatic to non-locals, I and most local dual-sporters do it so often that we become a bit jaded. The section that I never tire of is the most southern (before Hwy. 3) along Dutch Creek and Allison Creek roads. The trail can be rough, muddy, has a water crossing and dramatic scenery all the way. That part is always better later in the season when the ground has had time to dry out, and water in the streams has gone down.


532 just east of the 940 (Trunk road)


Trunk road just north of the 532 Junction.


Near Waterton Campground.


The Gap road east of the Trunk road.


The one water crossing by the Flood damaged bridge.


Original washout that rarely has any water flowing through these days.


New Quad bridge on Allison Creek road over washout.


Allison Creek road 20 minutes north of Hwy 3.


Dutch Creek road facing west before it turns south to join Allison Creek road.

As far as the rest of the tracks it is probably about 50 /50 gravel to pavement. The scenery is amazing the whole way.

Hey thanks for the reply.

For you a loop for me tying this into my ride.

I am deciding if i want to tie in US or beeline to Canada and cross my home country.

Either way this loop has been added.

Awesome!
