Scenic route around Steamboat Mountain, starting and ending in Radium.

Beautiful vistas of the Purcell and Rocky Mountains as you ride, plenty of lakes and streams along the way.

Moderately trafficked roads, with the potential for logging traffic - so heads up. Route is remote, so be prepared with food, water, and appropriate gear to fix flats or mechanicals - you're a ways from home (and cell reception)

Watch for bears and the ever prevalent forest cows!
