Had the truck, great place to get some real use out of it, the scenery was only stunning, and seems like there was no-one around when we were there- look out for some bald eagles!

If your heading into the interior of B.C. and have the time, take this road. Beautiful scenery and a wild drive at times. Lots of steep grades. Make sure you have a newer car or something in great shape.

Beautiful views! Can be a little slow in the summers with RVs out there, and good snow in the winter, but it's an excellent connection to Pemberton.

The road is spectacular, crossing through the heart of the Coast Range. Allow 2 hours between Pemberton and Lillooet when road conditions are good. Portions are narrow and steep (many grades up to 13%) so use low gears and don't overdo the brakes. Highly recommended.

Winter maintenance good. Road clear. Watch for fallen rocks with freeze-thaw weather. Take lots of window washing fluid and enjoy the beautiful winter scenery.

Where is Duffy Lake Road? It's route 99, if traveling from Whistler, it starts just after Pemberton. It's the main highway. When I traveled it in early May, I had the road entirely to myself on a Sunday afternoon. I only saw one other vehicle and it was a truck near Lilooet. This is a scenic mountain drive filled with...

This road is amazing in good weather and hell on wheels in bad weather. Just make sure you pick your season. Lots to see with great views coming into Lillooet.

Most of the road is in good condition with upgrades from the Olympics. There are switch-back at both ends of the road which can be troublesome on breaks, so use your transmission to do some of the work. Your passengers might get car sick if you don't stop a few times so take your time and enjoy the views. Lots... More

Great scenery, many different climate and mini geography zones. Road all paved and in very good condition. Gas up in Pemberton, if you follow road signs (eg. curves, hills, speed zones etc.) and use common sense there is no problem. Best to allow time to appreciate wonderful B. C. at its best. Choose a sunny clear day if possible.

The famed Duffy Lake Rd. is worth the trip. Gorgeous scenery--incredible glacier views from the hwy even. Be sure to have a reliable car for this one. A lot of graded hills of 11% or more.
