Drive the Molybdenite Ridge

Canada Molybdenite Ridge

Added by

The drive to Molybdenite Ridge offers non-stop 360 degree views of rocky peaks, pine forest, glacial lakes and jaw dropping cliffs. At 8,277 feet you can see it all. 

Starting at the Lytton Cable Ferry the gravel road begins. You are immediately greeted with views of the iconic Fraser River and local mountains. After approximately 40 km on the road, you turn onto Texas Creek FSR and follow this for 7 km before turning onto Molybdenite Main. This road takes you everywhere you want to go. The fork left takes you to the lake, right takes you to Molybdenite Ridge. 

The road to the ridge is one of BC's few shelf roads. As you climb higher along the road, the vegetation gradually changes from forest to sandy, rocky rugged mountain terrain. After a short drive, you are greeted with EPIC mountain views at every angle. 

Once you've taken in the views you have to turn around at the summit and you can head to the lake. If you look at the right time you can see the Gatorade blue lake from the shelf giving you a quick teaser of what's to come.

How to Get There

That's me!

So I was just searching the internet for some specific details on distance up to Molybdenite lake, and this article came up on Google so I opened it and was reading it. And the girls that you talked about on the dirt bikes/ATV was me and my friends!! The dates match up with the same exact weekend we were out there 4 years ago. Just really random to come across a random article on the internet that you realize is talking about you. And I can definitely recommend Molybdenite...one of the most beautiful and untouched places I've been!
