Is this Sidney Creek road a side road off of South Canol ?

  • A man who don't lie, ain't got nothin' to say.
Yes, it is.  It takes right off and heads west.  There has been a mining venture in there just the last few years and the road has been upgraded but I don't know much more about it.  I did some work out there about 3 or 4 years ago when I was working for an environmental company.   We found chinook salmon juveniles in the area (Iron Creek).   We did all our work from the air, so I'm really not familiar with it.   Troll can fill you in.    But yes, it takes right off from the South Canol.     R

Rem has it right.... ::008:: about 50km up the South Canol and just past the Sidney Creek crossing the road heads West for about 75km. It is slick as snot as the boys can atest and in bad shape until dry weather is around for a few days. We tried during the rally but only got about 5km in before turning around.  ::26::

Thanks for the photos and good memories Ryan. I have to say I had a blast that day actually I had a blast the whole trip but I do feel like have to go back to explore the Canol rd especially seeing that photo you took Troll. I'm thinking 2014. ::001::

I think you misunderstood - there is no "Fast Blue".  Sorry.  ::024:: ::025::
