Written Directions

Start at the junction of Highway 1 and 47 at Grenfell. The road takes you north through the Qu'Appelle valley with a short section in the valley. Turn west at the junction of Highway 47 and 22 at Killaly. The road from here to Fort Qu'Appelle has a several turns and a few dips onto coulees with a mix of farmland and small forests.

Scenery

As we left Grenfell, the road became less traveled with open fields on each side of the road. About 20 km north, we dipped into the Qu'Appelle valley. Our trip was in September and the changing colours of the trees was beautiful. Harvest was near completion with only a bit of work being done on a few fields. When we turned onto Highway 22 at Killaly, it became a mix of brush and fields until we joined the traffic on Highway 10 heading south again to Fort Qu'Appelle.

Drive Enjoyment

The road runs straight as an arrow for just over 10km and then teases with a few gentle curves before dropping into the valley. After a short bit on the valley floor, you climb back up to flat prairie. 15km later, with a turn onto Highway 22 at Killaly, the road improved for several km with sections of asphalt and chip seal. Although it's an east/west road, the twists seem like correction lines until we came across one that threatened to go full circle! There are some ravines along the way to add to the experience. Highway 22 joins the busier Highway 10 for the last 15 minutes of the ride to Fort Qu'Appelle.

Tourism Opportunities

We enjoyed a good lunch at Veramako Family Restaurant in Grenfell. Make sure you fill you tank before leaving town. Neudorf and Lemberg have services along Highway 22. Fort Qu'Appelle ks a bustling resort town serving the cottages along the chain of Qu'Appelle lakes. Take some time to get into the downtown area and visit the unique shops and restaurants.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

From Fort Qu'Appelle, follow the north side of the lake to the east or west for more good riding. See the entry on Indian Head through Katepwa.
