Pacific Marine Circle Route, Dirt Modified

The Pacific Marine Circle Route is a favorite of Vancouver Island motorcyclists and visitors alike.  The scenery along the route is a great mix of mountains, the southern West Coast and East Coast of Vancouver Island and Lake Cowichan.  Throw in wildlife, rivers and some great twisting roads and it's easy to see the popularity of this route.



The traditional route along Pacific Marine Road is paved, although rough in sections between Lake Cowichan and Port Renfrew.  For those who crave dirt roads, there is another way.  Instead of turning onto Pacific Marine Road at Mesachie Lake, continue along South Shore Road to Honeymoon Bay and take Gordon River Road.  This road is a great 60 km (36 mile) logging road that passes through mountains and along rivers.

I'd like to thank my riding partner for the day, Darren La Vigne, for showing me the Gordon River Road route and for his company.
