Highway 23 – Big Bend

A highway I have driven many times for a long relaxing trip with a low amount of traffic is highway 23 north of Revelstoke. It is also listed as the “big bend” highway, likely due to the large bend around an arm of Revelstoke Lake. The highway itself is a dead end, so you’ll generally only encounter logging trucks and tourists stopping at the various camp grounds along the route. I believe it is over 300km round trip out of Revelstoke, so a full tank of gas is required as there are no fuel stops.
