Liard Highway in July

Is the Liard road pretty decent in July? Would think that the pot holes are filled in from the winter months by then and a hard packed surface with marbles.. right?

Pretty much!

This pic was taken in July and I was heading south. This section was pretty marbly and a I'd say the exception. Surface constantly changes but unless freshly graded you can usually find mostly bare ribbons to transition. There will be the odd soft bit and it can be a little greasy when wet but just be vigilant.

Gravel roads in the NWT depend on the weather and when the grader last passed. If it is a wet period, that road gets beat up badly from the rain. And will remain in rough condition until the next grader pass.

With that said, July would be one of the better months to travel the Liard Highway.
