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.
