    Irresponsible camping practises have resulted in the food habituation of several Grizzly bears. This seasonal closure is required to prevent dangerous encounters with these bears and support the recovery of the local Grizzly bear population. Natural resource officers and conservation officers are enforcing both these closures, and will issue violation tickets to anyone caught ignoring the restrictions.

    When camping in the wilderness ensure you store your food securely and remove any food and garbage when you leave.

    Please be aware that the Lillooet River FSR is not regularly plowed in winter and travel can be treacherous. The road passes through several avalanche chutes. Use caution and know if snow is in the forecast.

  • Driving Directions:The trailhead is located at 42 km on the Upper Lillooet FSR. PLEASE NOTE: During the winter while the Hot Springs Trail is open, the Upper Lillooet FSR is not plowed or maintained. Access can be very limited, with potential avalanche danger. Please use at your own risk.

    From Pemberton BC drive up Pemberton meadows road until the junction with the Hurley Pass Road, turn right onto the Hurley Pass Road. Cross the Lillooet river, drive to approx. 6 km., stay left down the Upper Lillooet FSR and continue upstream until 42 km. Be careful NOT to turn up the Hurley Pass road to Gold Bridge and Bralorne.
