Scenery4 / 5
This is a great stage for anyone who likes remote, isolated dirt road exploring. Scenery varies between lush forest, desolate expanses of clearcut hills, and long stretches of dusty gravel roads. 

Traffic4 / 5
Very little traffic will be seen on this stage. In the summer, Morton Lake Provincial Park can be busy, so watch for campers. 

Difficulty4 / 5
Very easy to get lost during the first hour of this stage - see the Special Note for this stage for more information. 

Road Conditions3 / 5
Average road conditions. Nothing stands out as exceptionally challenging.


 Points of Interest
1. Ripple Rock Lookout
The Ripple Rock Trail, which leads to the Seymour Narrows lookout, is about a 3 hour roundtrip hike, and the view is very impressive.
