“Excellent”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

This is an excellent road if you want to get away from the Trans Canada Highway for a while. Even though we didn't get to see any animals this time around, normally its a pretty good place to spot some.

“Just what you might have imagined.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great views winding through the mountains and alongside the river. Cuts half an hour off the old route.

“Don't miss this, if you have a car.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Absolutely beautiful. Drive slowly and stop frequently to enjoy. Although the parkway is across the river from the Trans-Can, you are in a completely different world.

Awesome views, waterfalls were nice. Didn't see any wildlife though. If you have a car, its a must see.
