I can definetly reccomend Sumas mountain road, However you REALLY want to learn the layout in the day, Then actually drive it hard at night. I made the mistake of just going at night, Almost had a meeting with a tree, I thought i had a straight stretch, and it turns out 20 feet away we have a hairpin. Yeah.

Anyone in the Coquitlam area:

Head to the top of Coast meridian, through David Hill. Towards Burke Mountain. Fun little place to hoon around on. But towards the Top of Burke Mountain (Harper Road) becomes a dirt road.




Usually no traffic and no cops.

How far have you gone on Harper Rd lol ?

I'm not familiar with Coquitlam but I see Quarry rd to the right, and it looks like a trail as well that just goes on and on..

Yeah it is vehicle accessible. It leads to a gun range, but the pavement ends pretty much after that turn in the second pic. Only about half of harper road is paved.

For anyone planning on doing the drive around the top of Coast Meriden, please keep the jackassery off Coast Meridian itself. We have enough problems with people driving like morons up this road, speeding like crazy. There are people that live here, and lots of kids around.

And as a warning, bikes head up this road all the time, regularly doing double the limit. The cops are starting to visit Coast Meridian more and more looking for people to bust.

Yeah a few of my friends have seen people drift around those corners at night. There are plenty of bikers coming in and out of the road because a few downhill trail's exit out to the road.

Two and a half - two weeks ago? They must have finished after I went to visit it. The lower portion was only opened to residential traffic and the north end was completely barricaded.

How was the road? Were they repaving?

I don't think they were repaving, However they may have been... I drove it at night and didn't notice any smooth pavement but perhaps they did. I will probably head up with a few people in the next few days so i'll let everyone know.

I think you must mean the best way to get a ticket... I can't count the number of cops on that road...

Lower Sumas Mountain road collapsed in a landslide last winter, it has been closed since and will remain that way for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, it's just one 3-4 kilometer long stretch within an entire network of roads.

Sumas Mountain road, Upper Sumas Mountain road, Straiton road, and the rest of the extensive network all remain open.

Hmm, I've never encountered any. There is a great straight stretch leading into (or out of, depending which direction you're going) it. I don't even necessarily go that fast on Chuckanut, I just like the drive. There are some pretty amazing views there as well.

The road that loops to Lake Cowichan is a good one if you're already out that far.
