Don’t be fooled by our Twistiness rating. This surprisingly smooth secondary road has some of the best curves around-- at least south of the midway point where the route esses continuously along the river. But north of Silver Creek, the road changes its name from Salmon River Road to Salmon Valley Road. Not a good sign. No longer forced to follow the capricious river, the road straightens with a vengeance, finishing in a series of long beelines, interspersed with 90-degree turns, across the fertile valley floor. Still, if you’re migrating between the Okanagan and the Shuswap, it’s a great way to go. Even if you’re not, this DH is well worth the expenditure of a little rubber.
