It is about 37 km from Hwy 5 at Heffley Creek to the upper residential area of Sun Peaks where the pavement soon ends. The centre of the resort is a bit before that. According to some maps, the road name changes along the way: Tod Mountain Road, Heffley Louis Creek Road, Sun Peaks Road.

There are some nice sweepers along the way as well as a couple of lakes: Heffley Lake and Little Heffley Lake. There is a recreation site at Heffley Lake. The road passes through a picturesque valley around the mid-point. At about 25 km the roads narrows before it begins the final ascent to the mountain resort. There are some tighter corners along this stretch. All in all, it's a nice summer ride.

There is an option to continue on beyond the resort to Adams Lake by following Tod Mountain FSR, but I haven't ridden it myself.
