Title: BC Road Question
Post by: Acadian Rider on May 24, 2018, 05:27:03 pm
I am presently doing some planning and I am trying to get Garmin Base Camp to get me across what looks like Yank River Forest Road off Hwy 93 going and east back to Hwy 93 just before Elko. Google maps allows it no problem and even has street view of it but Garmin's Base Camp shows a break in the road and keeps wanting me to go to Cranbrook. Who's right? Google or Garmin. I trust Google more than Garmin. 

Here's what it looks like on Google Maps.

Is it a nice dirt/gravel road suitable for my big S10?  

I will be going through there in July if everything goes according to plan.

I haven't been through on a bike but I took that road in my Grand Cherokee last year and it shouldn't be a problem for you on your S10. It's a mix of dirt and gravel with some sections of larger and/or sharper rock (I ended up with a puncture) and when dry there's a lot of fine, silty rock dust that gets kicked up.

And it's Yahk, not Yank.  ;)

Thanks!   :thumbsup:

I knew it was Yahk but my brain wasn't completely in gear.
