Default Logging/Remote Road Suggestions? (2wd driving)

Hi, I'm new here.

Im looking for good, remote forest roads to drive a 2wd on. I live in Coquitlam.

Looking on google maps i see a plethora of forest roads above Coquitlam, such as 'Flyin' Branch' and 'Coquitlam West Mainline'. According to google maps, theoretically, if all of the roads were in driving condition (which would be a miracle) you could drive from Coquitlam all the way to Squamish.

The problem is, that, from my research all of these roads stem from one place - the Coquitlam Dam, via pipeline rd. There is a gate there, basically blocking off all of the hundreds of km of roads.

So the question is, is there any way to access any of these roads, or more importantly, do any of you have good suggestions for forest/remote roads accessible with a 2wd in Coquitlam (and the lower mainland)? And if any of you have road suggestions from further away, even in places like Princeton, that would be awesome (bonus if there is lots of wildlife and good scenery!) I would google them myself but information on these topics is very hard to come by, and I know that many of you on this forum have a lot of experience in the area.

Thanks so much in advance!!

Good day

As a logging truck driver that comes down the logging road with 70 tonnes of wood and metal. The thing i hate the most is the f...... wane be off road'ers that have no 2 way radio to communicate. Then they see the truck and just freeze on the road like a deer. Nothing personal to you, but it gets very frustrating.
If you go on a logging road then at least listen to the traffic and pull over and stop when you meet a truck.
Good luck.
