All trips are done solo, on a Wee, packed with camping gear (no motels, no restaurants staying).
Below are some gpx files, with relevant comments, if any, hwy parts are out.

Did those roads over the past 2 weekends. Basically, if you get above 1300 m of the see level, you will run into snow, if the road is not maintained. For example, I was trying to get to Ram hot springs from inside, the road is officially closed, but passable. Not this time, too much snow over the barricade part. So I get to them from the HWY, the last km on foot, snow again.

Adams lake, BC

Rides around Adams lake. The access over Finn creek might be closed because of snow. Beware of bears! Lots of them this season.

Paper maps show several back roads between those points. Google earth is not so optimistic, there are some roads there as well, but nothing major. No wonder going to Golden I ended up at a mine gate, turned left - there was a river on the road, so I turned back. Next time I will start from Golden. Here are my tracks.
