Looking at the maps I see Forestry Trunk Road 734 that runs parallel to the Smoky River from near Grande Cache to near Grande Prairie. Any one with experience on that road and would it be a worthwhile alternative to 40? I'll be camping near Jasper and riding to Dawson Creek to pick up the Alaska Highway (on the way to D2D.) Also, for those familiar with Dawson Creek, are there any cheap motels there? I don't require much but will be coming off several days of camping and looking at several more.
