Road Info:  With the exception of the southern-most 3km of Highway 553, I have not personally driven the route; however I understand that Highway 553 is extremely remote (there are no services located along either Highway 553 or Highway 810 outside of Massey).  Furthermore, the highway is gravel surfaced and used extensively by large logging vehicles.
