British Columbia

Thanks to the almost impossibly mountainous terrain, it's almost hard to find a road that isn't scenic in British Columbia. One problem is that all those mountains make road building very difficult, and as a result there are few that cross the province. Traffic can bunch up behind the seasonal RVers and frustrate the best of us, but if you know how and when to avoid the arterial routes you can still get to some amazing and quiet places.

For the truly adventurous and prepared, BC also has a huge network of forest service roads (FSRs) that reach into the wilderness. We'll include a number of them, but make sure to check out the BC Forest Service Roads page for details.
