that looks like an awsome run.....I take it that this is all kid friendly riding? we want to take the 8 yr old on his 110 on a camping/quadding trip and kvr looks like a perfect trail to do it.

It is kid friendly. There is a couple of bypass trails that you take to get around slides.

The problem with portions of the KVR in the Coquihalla section is that it is owned by Trans Mountain Pipeline. It is not open to public access.

we would like to ride for a day, set up camp for a night then ride back the next day where would be a good place to start out on the trail? (coming from mission)

there is some nice places to set up camp between coalmont and princton on the kvr right on the river,just lock up your rig at larson ,park it close to someone thats staying there.Or if someone showed you can get there on the kvr from caroline mines but i have not done that one yet but almost.
