I did this loop. Left downtown at about 9:30AM, got back in town about 11:45PM. Made stops at Hope and Lilloet for food. Also stopped at Porteau Cove, Joffre Lakes, and other various pulloffs for views.

We were running late due to a detour through Mission to hit Dewdney Trunk road and took the 12 instead of Highway 1 > 99 to save an hour going from Lytton to Lilloet. The road surface on the 12 is brutal even in an IS, and I've heard that 99 especially by Pavillion is a ton of fun.

The leg from Lilloet to Pemberton is an absolute riot. Tons of elevation changes, sharp corners, and switchbacks. The second half has great scenery (make sure to stop by Joffre Lakes) and has an fun downhill section if you have the brakes for it.

My recommendation would be to either take something with even better chassis than an IS F-Sport, or take something more comfortable than an IS F-Sport. When taking the 12 and Duffey Lake road at an aggressive pace, it felt a bit underdamped. At the same time, the ride was a little rough for the long drive, and the ventilated seats not very well ventilated.

Though I had some criticisms for the car, I came away incredibly impressed by IS's nonetheless. Easy to drive if you're just loafing along, but if you ask for more it wakes up and feels like an E46. Firm brake pedal that was easy to modulate, good feedback through the steering but not too heavy, and pretty fun to toss around.. it felt incredibly at home driving at 6-7/10ths on the Sea to Sky.

There's a phallic symbol infront of my car

MG1: in fact, a new term needs to make its way into the American dictionary. Trump............ he's such a "Trump" = ultimate insult. Like, "yray, you're such a trump."

may be it's a completely different experience on 2-wheels, but the duffy lake loop in a car is overrated IMO

Lillooet is bland and ugly

only real highlights past sea-to-sky are pockets between whistler and duffy lake and short stretches of the fraser canyon

haven't explored many BC roads but I like hwy 4 on the island to ucluelet/tofino

some of my favourites outside of BC

Zion Mt. Carmel, Utah

Esterel Massif, France

Taroko Gorge, Taiwan

I think I'll be trying it out this weekend!
Its been 11 years since the original post but I was wondering whether or not the gravel road has been paved yet. Getting ready for some spirited driving for the summer

Bump. Any new roads anyone found in or near the province?

I'll contribute.

WA State:
Route 20 (North Cascade Highway) from Rockport to Okanogan. Lots of nice scenery along the way. Winthrop is a neat little town.
Lake Whatcom Blvd. Reminds me a bit of Marine Dr. in West Van but longer.
Route 542 from Kendall to Mt Baker.

Where can we do some high speed runs without being arrested other than a track?
