Written DirectionsLeaving Hope, BC, Canada, not far east of Vancouver, head east on Highway 3 (Crownest Trail) to Osoyoos, BC, and I recommend even going beyond it, as you'll see on the map: https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Hope, BC/Osoyoos, BCfirstname.lastname@example.org,-121.0457632,9z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x5483f5ca1983c7d7:0x7797106dac92bc3!2m2!1d-121.441944!2d49.385833!1m5!1m1!1s0x5482c5b162651d67:0x9138986d547b0fcc!2m2!1d-119.468163!2d49.032304?hl=en
SceneryMountain highways sweep from small town to small town. You'll have a lot of roadside turnout to stop to take a break while admiring the view. Take in incredible mountain views, forests, and desert during this trip, including some great little towns and even oddities like the very strange Spotted Lake, right before Osoyoos.
Drive EnjoymentBeing a mountain highway, you're going to have a few bumps in the road, but it's nothing that you'll remotely be concerned about. Instead, enjoy the fact that you'll rarely be vertical during large portions of this trip, taking in sections that range from long, sweeping curves to quick, twisty switchbacks.
Tourism OpportunitiesGas up as you leave Hope, and you'll never be lacking for fuel along the way. Stop in at Osoyoos for lunch at any number of great little restaurants in this desert town that sits pretty much right next to the US border and expect incredible weather where it's not uncommon to see 40C/104F during the height of summer, and as you leave town, you'll make a rigorous climb up switchbacks to a great lookout over the entire valley.
Motorcycle Road Additional infoI recommend taking this road all the way to Castlegar, BC, or even Banff, AB. If you do make it to Banff, Highway 93 between Banff and Jasper is one of the most scenic roads you can possibly take.
