    Dewdney Trail - Christina Lake to Rossland?

    I am planning a trip along the Trans Canada Trail/Columbia & Western Rail Trail from Trail to Christina Lake, and was wondering if it is worthwhile to complete the loop by taking the Dewdney Trail and/or Cascade Highway. Does anyone here have any local knowledge of that route? I can't seem to find much regarding how bikeable the Dewdney Trail might be for bike packing or how bike-friendly or rugged the Cascade Highway would be.

    My plan was to do the other parts of the route self-supported on my 29er+ bike (rigid), and I am only a beginner on single-track trails and am much more comfortable/experienced with dirt road touring.

    Here's some info:

    Dewdney Trail / Cascade Highway (Christina Lake - Rossland) | Trails BC
    Cascade Highway, Rossland to Christina Lake BC, Canada.

    I've ridden the section of the Cascade highway from Rossland to the junction with the Seven Summits trail and I'm pretty the entire Old Cascade Highway is ridable with a loaded bike, Dewdney not likely.

    Thanks for the reply. That link to the Trails BC website you provided was the best info I could find, too. Unfortunately, it didn't reveal much about biking on the trail or highway, so I appreciate your personal comments.

    Any idea how much truck traffic is on the Highway, particularly logging trucks?
