Tough ride, lots of uphill but would do it again with my bike seat 4” higher!

Scenic drivingGreat!

There are a lots of viewpoints on the way. We stopped and hiked at Hector Lake, Bow Lake, Waterflow Lakes, mosquitos trail and a few others. It was a day well spent.

Scenic drivingClosedGreat!No shade

Latest Completion: August 10, 2020 Last time we went on the Bow Valley Parkway, we did the half that was open from Lake Louise to Castle Junction. I have done this Parkway all the way from Banff to Lake Louise. The best part of this Parkway is the Johnston Canyon hike. There are lots of viewpoints along the Parkway as well, if you don't want to hike. Not the most scenic drive in the Rockies, but definitely a good alternative to the busy HWY 1.

Latest Completion: September 4, 2020 The best and most scenic Highway/Parkway in the Canadian Rockies! So many gorgeous places to stop and many great hikes along the Parkway. It's the main way to travel through Jasper NP, and let's you explore Banff NP beyond Banff and Lake Louise. Seen bears here all 10 times I've been here. A drive that anyone who visits has to do!

It was fantastic! No vehicles to Johnston Canyon, lots newly paved. The road splits for some of the way, so a different view too!

Great view but a rough trail down to see the falls with a significant drop down to the rocks so watch your footing. There has also been work done to the road and is a pullout with enough room for 4 or 5 vehicles just South (Alma side) of the bridge instead of driving across and parking on the North side.

Off Road DrivingGreat!
First to Review

This FSR is the main road in the middle of an off road paradise. In our opinion, this Is the best area for OHVs in Southern B.C. A key reason: NO GATES! Most FSRs have numerous gates blocking branching roads or even worse, a gate right at the main FSR trailhead to block 4X4s. The Mamquam River FSR is quite easy. Anybody with a two wheel drive truck can do this; no skills required. The difficulty (or fear factor) begins when you venture on to the roads branching off. We took our Rubicon to the end of this road and decided to keep going. (FYI We started another recording linked to Seed Peak for this part) First we did E Main, then E100, followed by E110. We then started the Pinecone Trail, which is not really a "trail". Just another logging road. After a while, the road started to get very rough and very steep too. The mountain views are incredible from here. Even the glaciers seem so close. We had almost reached Coquitlam at that point (Pinecone Burke Park) so we decided to stop. With just one vehicle, getting stranded there would be a nightmare, even with our satellite phone. If you want to venture off the Mamquam FSR, we definitely recommend going in groups of at least two Jeeps. Our next adventure will be the Stawamus/ Indian River FSR. This one branches off south from the Mamquam FSR, stretching all the way to Indian Arm in North Vancouver. Stay safe and have fun!

Not a hiking trail so one star for that. The streetcar experience is fun for tourists and history buffs who want to experience an old-time streetcar ride. Shouldn’t really be on AllTrails but there are many other beautiful hikes in the river valley surrounding the High Level bridge on both sides of the river that it’s attached to.

The trail is your average FSR there are some nice technical stuff. would recommend 33” tires just for a little more clearance.
