I like the road over Pavilion plateau, beautiful country even if the road makes some people (like Wendy!) nervous.
Two summers ago we came from Kelly Lake to Pavilion on our way home from a family wedding in northern Alberta, pulling the Boler. About a kilometer in from the bottom of the road at the Kelly Lake end, some wag had posted an obviously home-made sign "Caution: active logging, watch for trucks". I was about 98% certain there really was no logging, but I was still a little apprehensive as I dragged the Boler up-and-over, because there is NO WAY to pass a big rig or to back up until you get up on the plateau and into the rangeland!
I agree the road north from Kelly Lake is a great way to head towards Williams Lake, good gravel road close to and with great views of the Fraser River canyon, up through Dog Creek and the Gang ranch country. Beats the highway, and is my kind of traveling!
