The contest for the first Hurley trip of the season photo contest has closed and you can vote on your favourite entry on the Bridge River Valley Facebook page.

Fire Danger is extreme and there is a total fire ban which means no campfires, fireworks, bear bangers and no tossing cigarette butts!  Be aware that a hot exhaust from your vehicle, dirt bike or ATV can ignite dry grass easily so keep that in mind when you pull over.  If you see smoke or a wildfire, report it by calling 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on your cell when you get back into cell range mid way in the Pemberton Meadows. Information about fires can be found at the BC Wildfire website.

The Whistler Ironman biking event is held on the Pemberton Meadows Road and the road will be closed on Sunday July 30 from 8.45am to 4.30pm. More information at this link: Ironman Road Closures

    I came down the Hurley on Friday June 30th from Gold Bridge to Pemberton.

    When I went to unlock my hubs at the bottom I noticed that my Bull Bar on the front of my truck didn’t survive the Hurley and had broken off and was gone.

    it was black made out of 6 inch diameter tube it had a stainless steel skid plate attached that had the manufacturers name “Airies“on it.

    My wife and I rode our quads from the bottom to Gold Bridge and back the next weekend looking for it and no luck. if found please call John 604-539 8166. I can`t get warranty without it. Thanks

    Wow..That Hurley is something else. Gerry is spot on. There’s way too much loose large stuff. Large rocks scattered everywhere, very sharp stuff, washboards galore from start to Gold Bridge. I always bring my tire pressure way down and still manage to get a puncture on fairly new all-terrain tire. 30 mins later another victim, another truck with solid tires got a flat! It just destroys our vehicles and is very dangerous not too mention the adding cost of miscellaneous repairs. I can only hope that qualified operators are hired for this job and Gerry is right. If the logging industry benefits from that road, it only makes sense that they should also contribute to the maintenance costs of the road. As a taxpayer of Bralorne and a landowner with absolutely no services on my property, pretty much only accessible in the summer, I feel a bit short changed…. I’m on my way to buy a second spare tire………

    What’s with the grading of the Hurley? It’s been very rough from end to end for most of the season. How many grades are we supposed to be paying for? Is anyone monitoring the grades and is it being graded by qualified operators? My thought also is the grading should be done after long weekends so we get maximum use for the grading not before high use as it gets pounded for just one weekend. If logging trucks are pounding the new grades on our dollars should they not be grading or contributing for extra grading with 18 wheels of aggressive treads. With the extra rough roads safety becomes an issue of instability for vehicles to maintain proper steering and braking.
