In August some friends and I went to Gold Bridge to do some exploring.
We just got to Mud Lakes and one of the trucks ended up with drive shaft problems so our trip was cut short.
Poison Mtn. was as far as we got.

My question is what is East of Poison Mtn??
Is it worth going back and heading East or is it just logging road after that?

After Poison Mtn, there is the Yalakom Valley, China Head Ridge, and the Big Bar reaction ferry that crosses the Fraser River.

Not much wheeling involved, mostly scenic, but is worth the drive. A good place to camp on the second night would be at Schraeder Lake.

Is it my imagination, or do the Backroad Mapbooks totally miss that area?


I've noticed that as well - without looking at the book it seems like the cut off is just south of the area. Mind you, they are coming out with an updated volume for the Cariboo this spring so maybe it will encompass additional areas........

Or...hopefully not! I love that area, and it wouldn't hurt my feelings to see them overlook it again. All the Yahoos rippin around in the meadows up there really cheeses me off!

Its a nice area. The back road map books have missed it which is good. The area is on the government maps. It is also discussed in some back road books.

Hopefully it will stay off the backroads mapbook again. When we went through there last year on the August long weekend, there was very little traffic and people. It was a nice change from the usually crowded places, like Harrison.

I certainly didn't mean to give the impression that I was hoping that the new edition would have the area in it, rather just speculating that it might.

Having said that, I've certainly checked out a few destinations I've noted in the back roads map books.

I agree, that whole area is fantastic - beautiful camp sites, great scenery, and just the *feel* of being in or near alpine is good for a person

On many of the trips we do, we can go for days without seeing another vehicle (except when passing through towns of course). You are right, it's VERY nice. To me, "getting away" does not mean camping in the middle of a hundred other people.
