I especially loved this part of the Trans Canada…

Written Directions

You start this section of the route in Sicamous on TC-1. Head east on TC-1 until the junction of TC-1 and BC Rt.95 in Golden.


The scenery along this section of Rt.1 is beautiful. Starting off in Sicamous , you are entering the Northern Canadian Rockies. You follow the Eagle River for the first 20 miles as mountains rise up all around. You pass several lakes surrounded by mountains and awesome views. After entering Revelstoke on a big suspension bridge even taller mountains and Rogers Pass loom before you. You climb all the way surrounded by snow capped mountains to Rogers Pass, elev. 4364 feet. The road then dives down and follows the wide Columbia River valley into Golden.

Drive Enjoyment

This route would be a 5 but settles for a 4 because of single lane and truck traffic slowing things down, especially when climbing. The pavement is very good. There are some passing lanes which help. The curves are mostly sweepers with a few tighter ones mixed in but nothing to sharp.

Tourism Opportunities

The primary tourist opportunities are related to nature here. The Last Spike, about 16 miles from Sicamous is a cool historical stop. Revelstoke has gas, food and lodging and is the western gateway to the Canadian Rockies. You can ride up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway for awesome views of Revelstoke and the river. The Giant Cedars Boardwalk is a good place to stretch your legs as is Hemlock Grove up the road. Stop at Rogers Pass and check out the visitor center and just take in the beauty that surrounds you.
