  • Fauquier (Applegrove) to Slocan (Passmore)

    Hey, anyone traveled the power line road from Applegrove to the Koch Creek FSR? and onto Slocan?
    The map book also shows Burton FSR may connect to the north end of the Koch FSR, anyone been through this way?
    I'm looking to get from Lower Arrow Lk to Slocan Lk. any ideas?

    Some buddies and I did Passmore - Fauquier and back a couple (or three) years ago. No idea what kind of shape it's in this year. The last couple of winters were low on snow but there have been a few nasty rain/wind events so who knows. East (powerline access road) to west (logging road) was the easier direction of travel. In one of my past posts in a thread about this route I have a link to a video of the trip to Fauquier.
    Although BC Backroads shows a connection from Koch to Burton Creeks I was told last year that heading north on Koch the McKean Lakes trail into Valhalla park is the end of the line.
    EDIT: It was four years ago.
    Read this thread:
    There is a GPS track in one post and also the link to the video in another.

        Did it August long weekend this year. Road has never looked better( in last 6 or so years anyway). Much easier from Arrow to Slocan than reverse as west to Arrow has some steep loose sections. No prob for enduro style DS.Big bikes would be a hand full. Cheers

          Does anyone have GPS tracks for this ride? Would like to do it in late June. From peoples experience will the snow be clear?

            No idea regarding snow, only did it once in August.

              I did this route in late July. Lots of fallen trees and I was glad someone had been there before me and cleared most out. I still had to hatchet a couple so I wouldnt have to double back. One of my favorite rides so far in BC. Doable solo on a loaded up DRZ 400 and challenging enough to keep the heart pumping in spots. I wouldnt want to do it West-East either.
