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.

We really loved this highway btwn Pemberton and Lillooet. We pulled a trailer thru with no trouble. If you do this trip with and RV make sure you have good brakes and a decent engine because there are numerous switchbacks and steep grades to contend with.

I have driven the Duffy Lake road in both a car and on a motorcycle. It is really fun on the Motorcycle and you see more of the gorgeous scenery and wildlife but watch for the fallen rocks on the road.
