The drive out here is worth it. In fact do the whole Okanogan loop. The scenery is spectacular, wide open 2 lane roads, wildlife opportunities and lots of places to fish, hunt and camp. Molson in particular is quite the historical story and the museum...More

There are actually two museums in Molson the first one you see whilst traveling into the town is on your right hand side and it is a display of old farming implements and machinery. It's well worth visiting to see how our ancestors used machinery...More

The ghost town is small but well preserved. The museum is a treat. The class rooms, science room, and original library look as if students left just yesterday. Other rooms tell the story of the Molson mine and rail terminus, illustrated with artifacts of all...More

Well worth the visit if you're in the area, located UPHILL from the town of Oroville approx 15 miles/24km. Allow for a 45min drive one way and 1-2 hours to visit the site. Check the hours with the "Molson Museum Association" before you go. Lots...More

Unless this is your thing I don't see making a special trip to get here mainly because it's on the outskirts of the outskirts. The surrounding area is pretty mainly because it is high and has trees and green grass differing from the surrounding lowlands...More

We were camping in BC and decided to cross the border to visit Molson based on tripadvisor reviews and we're so glad we did! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole afternoon, including the drive through the beautiful landscape, the friendly volunteers at the schoolhouse museum and...More

A nice touch of preserving the past in fine fashion. the village kept its charm without normal restrictions when viewing vintage artifacts. Although there were no personnel to highlight the collection, the self guiding pace kept the Ghost Town theme unscathed.

Since I'm not a motorcycle rider, I can't answer the question from experience, but the road is paved the entire way and I would think that it would be a good ride.
