Airport Road – 25km one way

Dust off the cobwebs on a mellow ride along airport way. Cruise along the east side of the Columbia River past Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Mount Cartier. A beautiful pedal with little elevation gain and minimal traffic once you get out past the airport.

 

Highway 23 N (The Road to Nowhere) – 150km one way

The highway was paved to facilitate construction of the Mica Dam and rerouted when Lake Revelstoke was filled up behind the Revelstoke Dam. 150 kilometers of paved bliss, with almost no traffic to speak of and amazing views most of the way. It’s primary purpose to get to and from Mica Dam, but it also accesses a number of recreation sites and trails.

 

Meadows in the Sky Parkway (Mount Revelstoke National Park) – 26km one way

Wind your way up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway, a 26km paved route that climbs 1,500m to Mount Revelstoke’s 2000m summit. Your journey begins in the world’s only inland temperate rainforest, passes through old-growth stands of cedar and hemlock, and culminates in stunning wildflower meadows – from the glacier lilies and marsh marigolds of early summer to the red Indian paintbrush, yellow arnica and purple lupine that leave the fields awash in colour by August.

 

Highway 23 S (Revelstoke – Arrow Lakes Ferry) – 52km one way

A paved highway takes you along the Columbia River valley, with the towering Selkirk and Monashee mountain ranges on each side. The highway is quiet, except for ferry traffic, which passes by each half hour. At the terminus (Shelter Bay Ferry Terminal), Eagle Bay recreation site offers camping on Upper arrow lake, with beautiful morning sunrises, mountains and forest to explore and water-based recreation opportunities.
