       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.

       Two weeks ago, I did the section from Thalia to Brookmere. Lots of large rocks on the trail, near Thalia but otherwise in good condition.
      Able to drive around any obstacles.
      From Thalia to Tulameen usually has flooded sections this time of year. Lots of "whoops" along that section as well.
      Be very careful when approaching bridges, some have post-holes in the middle of the trail and the pipes stick out of the ground a few inches...could damage tires/rims.
