Crowsnest Highway: Hope to Osoyoos Professional Review and Guide
"The Crowsnest Highway is a 250-kilometer (150-mile) drive through the Cascade Mountains from the coast to the interior along one of BC’s principal west-east routes. The drive passes through a whole range of scenery from low to high and from wet to dry in this cross-section of BC along the Canadian/US border. The Crowsnest quickly travels from the bustling Fraser Valley into the “real” BC—a land of endless forests, jagged summits, and raging white-water rivers.
History is a big part of the drive which retraces traditional routes that used to link several gold rush communities. Special attractions: The Cascade Mountains, Manning Provincial Park, the Blackwall Peak Road into the alpine, the ghost towns in the Tulameen River near Princeton, the mining ruins near Hedley, the Pocket Desert, and Osoyoos Lake. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
