       Is this all trail or does it use a bunch of roads to link up the 169.4km?

       I believe it is prodominently mixed 2 track/roadways now, but that is strictly from Google Maps satellite viewing.

       It's mostly double-track, in some sections it's actually paved bike path! It's supposedly closed to ATV's but there's no enforcement along much of the route. I did Mira Canyon to Merritt in 2017 on a 35c road bike, and it sucked pretty bad. A plus size bike would make the route very enjoyable.

       Has anyone any information on the condition of the section between Brookmere and Tulameen? We plan on riding it in the spring and appreciate any input.
