I've never been to the Gold River and Buttle Roads on the island but heard lots of great things about it. Thinking of doing this loop over two days and 1 night. Anyone interested please post up. Anyone with good recommendations for food, accomodation, or roads please also offer advice.
Meet: 8:30am July 17th at the Church, leave at 9:00am for the 9:30 ferry to Langdale.
Route: July 17th: Ferry to Gibsons, Sunshine Coast hwy to Earl's Cove. Ferry to Saltery Bay, Continue 101 to Powell River. Ferry over to Comox, possible stay here for the night.
July 18th: Hwy 19 to Campbell river, hwy 28 to explore the Gold River and Buttle road. Back over to Campbell River, down through Comox to Nanaimo, ferry back to Horseshoe Bay.
These routes are subject to change. Those of you who have been through these areas, please suggest better routes if any.
Pace: Moderate (speed limit +20 or 30) This is more of an exploring, enjoy the scenery ride.
