Milage for Duffy lake run

Post by Chickenman » 29 Jun 2017 14:20

Hey guys. Some of the local Z Club members are planning a cruise from North Vancouver to Squamish. Then Pemberton to Lillooet and back to North Vancouver. Anyone know the approximate mileage of this trip?

Im sitting up in the mountains right now,20 km from Goldbridge, on the side of a lake. Milage is 100 km Pemberton to Lillooet one way. North van to pemberton about 159 km one way approx.

No traffic scenario Pemberton to A & W in Lillooet.....50 minutes.......traffic......???

Go EARLY, or it will be a lesson in frustration.

Road from Lytton to Lillooet is still horrible!

Walked almost into grizzly sow with 3 cubs, that was exciting to say the least.

Thanks keith. I figured it out with Google Maps. 579 KM. Too much for one day at the time and pace we want.

Yah, that is still a long day and with the nightmare traffic at Whistler and Brittania, your camshaft is not going to like it!

I am going to plan plan a drive to either Winthrop or Fort Casey soon, hopefully get a drive in with minimal traffic, at least with the going part.

Have run Lillooet/Pemberton twice this year and once the other way. Including once in my 710. Gotta say it's my favorite section of highway on my 1.500 mile Canby road trip this year. I always try to include it.
