The pavement on this route gets a little rougher and narrower the farther north you travel. You will find sections with no center line and the curves that have no signage on them. There are some gravel breaks and potholes to watch out for. There are no shoulders on this road. there are several wood bridges on this road also.
You are in the wilderness on this road. The opportunities for gas and food are few and far between. Bell 2 Lodge is 57 miles north of Meziadin Jct. Gas , lodging and food are available there. Tatogga Lake Resort comes up in about 90 miles after Bell 2. Tatogga Lake is a good spot to get a bite to eat and is an interesting place with a lot of taxidermy mounts there.
