We've stopped at the golf course before. Meh for food. Enjoy the road!Link to the cherryville golf course/roadhouse cafe site.*
I'll say it again, imho this is the best 'sport riding' road in BC. It is the only road I've ridden in BC that has a 'flow' similar to many of the roads found in NorCal or Oregon. If this road had you reminiscing, you must find an opportunity to taste some of the incredible twisties our neighbors down south have to offer.*But we took 31a from new Denver to kaslo on our way over to Nelson and I've only been home for an hour and can't stop thinking about that section. May try to talk the wife into Kaslo and back as a day trip for us.*
Impossible to miss if you travel the road, it's part of hwy6 not a separate rd. I dropped a pin from my house is 93km. Means it's approx 83km east of Lumby. Big signs like pictured both ways though. And heading east it starts just past a brake check pullout and a handful of small homes grouped on the highway. You can't miss it because these are the first anything you will have seen after spruce grove(which is the little closed down cafe/home just before the kettle falls turn off). So there's been nothing for along while, the monashee summit and a rest area, besides that, wilderness and the odd logging Rd. The 7km of angel falls paradise ends heading east with a one way bridge and the last dark shady corner. I've never seen this corner 100% dry. Always some moisture on the road. So obviously if you're coming from the east it starts with that corner and the one way bridge.*. Angel falls is just the local yokels/common name for that specific 7km of hwy6. I am literally third generation Lumby and that's just how I've always heard that section of road referred to as, angel falls. Yes I do have all my teeth. :flashySo heading east. After the summit and past the rest area. There's signage for truckers to check brakes and there's like three or four homes right along the highway. There is also signage for 7km of twisty Rd. Right after angel falls twisties is the big straights before you come to the Edgewood turn off.* lots of 50km recommended corners some 40 and right down to a 20. Non stop for 7km. I've ridden that section about 10 times this weekend over three days.
This pic is the sign from the east(Edgewood side). Coming from the east it kind of starts with a bridge that states 'yield to oncoming traffic'. Coming from the west it starts right after the few homes. I've heard in past days there was a general store and cafe there and even way back a gas station. Now it's just like four homes though in the middle of nowhere. **

You've ridden it many times. It's the slowest 'twistiest' section of HWY 6; if you're headed west after getting off the ferry, it's the tighter section after all the long straight sections. Think something similar to norcal except the camber is wrong, the road is often dirty, and the pavement isn't as abrasive - still fun though. Not to shit on your recommendation, Squisher, just wanted to give CDG some perspective.After reading this thread twice, I have no fucking clue where this "road to Angel Falls" is from your descriptions. Please, how many kms is it from X?
I would definetly love to get down to Oregon or NorCal. One day for sure. I did the Oregon coast down into the tip of California only once on my honeymoon in a '98prelude. *My wife was sick most of the way with terrible motion nausea. So I could make a play for a redo together on our bikes. That was 16 years ago to the day we were on that trip. This last weekend was our anniversary.*I'll say it again, imho this is the best 'sport riding' road in BC. It is the only road I've ridden in BC that has a 'flow' similar to many of the roads found in NorCal or Oregon.
