Did the Duffy loop last year counterclockwise going by HWY-1 through Lytton. I wanted to do a bigger loop this Sunday by taking the 5 from Hope to Merritt, and then the 8 to Spences Bridge. Here's the proposed route: https://goo.gl/maps/rp1FJQyPu4k
Here's my question: to get from Spences Bridge to Lillooet, should I back track down HWY-1 and go to Lillooet on the 12? Or go north on HWY-1 and take the 99 down to Lillooet? Which is the better surface, twistier route?
Or to throw a third option into the mix, how is the 97C from Merritt to Cache Creek? Looks like a nice road, but how is the surface? Is it worth missing out 8 to go with the 97C?
