Whats your favourite spot or place to drive on the Island?

I like the the Propect Lake >> Munns Rd drive starting at the park and ending at Millstream.

As for mountain hills, where is a good one?

My favorite roads include the above:

The drive to port hardy, Tofino, and the port renfrew loop if you dont mind a few sections of hard pack gravel.

Port Alice is also a very nice drive. I still want to check out Gold river, and winter harbour (more gravel) which is about as far as you can go in a car on the island.

Tofino is always great.

The Renfrew loop is now paved all the way :ugh:

Mount Washington going up is usually a rush.

Southern side of Lake Cowichan still has some good gravel roads.

The others are pretty short:

Humpback Road (no room for mistakes).
Otter Point Rd in Sooke.
The on and off ramps at Hwy 1 and Veterans Memorial Parkway (I said short!)
Nanaimo Lakes Rd.

They are all more fun with a group run :D

There are some others we have done on Rallies .. but at dark, following navies instructions, no idea what roads, but a hell of lot of fun (gravel of course).
