Duffy Lake Road was a surprise. More scenic than I imaged from the map. Not as God Smacking as some Alpine routes, but better than taking the Trans Canada expressway to Whistler. Pemberton was worth a look purely from the ‘absence of tourists’ point of...More

Every year in July I set out on my bike from Richmond B.C. and ride up to Lillooet and then decide where to go from there. The reason I always go to Lillooet is because of the ride on Duffy Lake Road. You start with...More

Scenery, wild life and parks abound. Lots of pull outs along the route to stop for a break or take photos. Camping and hiking areas for the summer, cross country skiing areas for the winter.

We've driven this route in September, when the Autumn colours are changing. It is absolutely spectacular! The road is in pretty good condition and was relatively easy to drive (the usual hills and bends of a mountain route). Just watch out for other vehicles taking...More

We were pleasantly surprised by the condition of the road. Pavement was in great shape. Note there are quite a number of rest stops on the portion of the road located in the Cariboo district, not many (if any...can't remember) in the Pemberton (?) district....More

From Lillooet to Whistler on the Duffy Lake Road it's around 2 hours if there are no 'hiccups', but that will certainly depend on both the road conditions (i.e. rain, snow, icy), and the traffic as well. I can't stress enough that this isn't a...More

Very little gravel. Just a couple of short stretches, bridges and culvert construction

One short stretch south of Lillooet is unpaved due to a new bridge going in, but otherwise totally paved.

Hi ALL past users of "Duffy Lake Road" Hwy 99! We are hiring a 32" RV (with 3 bikes on the back as well!!) in late June this year and have planned a route using this road. I have read all your comments (about braking and switchbacks!) and i did run it past the RV hire company to see if it was a "NO GO road" but they did not comment. I am experienced in driving large vehicles and have a PCV (Double Decker Passenger Bus Licence -UK) and drove 12 metre buses all over Brighton UK for 7 years, but these are different beasts and i have never driven one before! In all of your opinions... is this road SAFE and practical to drive with an RV of the length? (I am very considerate driver and will be contiually pulling over to allow faster vehicles to pass). I don't want to get half way along and get stuck! We have all day to get from Squamish to Lilliooet. Is that practical in this size RV? Thank you in advance for all of your helpful advice. Paul - Sussex, UK.
