The trip to Sol Mountain is well worth the drive; along the way, there are some fantastic views of Upper Arrow Lake; the vivid blue water is truly remarkable! The last section goes through the Monachee Provincial Park and follows Fostall Creek, which is pretty nice too.

This is an active logging road, so watch out for trucks and always bring a two-way radio with you to communicate with other drivers on the road. Sol Mountain Road is primarily a single-lane road but is pretty wide at parts.

Stay on Sol Mountain Forest Service Road; other roads branch off the main one, but just follow the signs for Sol Mountain. Near the end of the road, you’ll come to a fork in the road; if you go right, that will take you to Sol Mountain, and if you go left, there is a short but very steep climb up to a ridge and what looked like an incredible place to camp. The drive is through Crown Land, so camping is free anywhere off the road, but there are no designated campgrounds along this trail.

The road is in pretty good condition, and it does get rocky at parts; 4x4 is nice to have but not necessary unless you want to do the short climb on the left fork.
