Hello. I am planning a "as much gravel as possible" route from southern Alberta, to Kootenay lake. My original plan was to get off of the black top around Pincher Creek, Head over the continental divide at Middle Kootenay Pass, and take some BC Forest service roads to Cranbook. Then Black top to just past Kimberly, and hit the Grey Creek Pass. This route looked great on paper, But i have found out that Middle Pass is now closed seasonally, due to some wildlife management BS. So i was wondering if anyone knows a good route for us to take. We will be riding heavily loaded KLR, a Dakar, And a Vstrom. I have camped and Quaded in the area North of the #3 all of my life. So i am familiar with the type of terrain that goes with that area. So far the most Viable route i can think of is the North Fork Pass. Is Elk Pass open to motorized vehicles? We want to keep to the southern part of the province if possible. and want to avoid the very deep shale that can be in the high country. These are heavy bikes, and we know it.
