Due to the extreme fire danger in the Kamloops Fire Centre, there is currently a ORV ban on all crown land (ATV, dirt bike, side by side) and this includes the Hurley from the summit to Gold Bridge. Vehicles licensed for highway use are permitted on the Hurley Road but are not permitted to go off-road. Hurley drivers are asked to keep an eye out for any fire or smoke. To report a wildfire or irresponsible behaviour call 1 800 663-5555 or *5555 from a cell phone. We shouldn’t have to say this but don’t throw butts out the window!
The Hurley is in rough shape and FLNRO is well aware. It is counter productive to grade in such dry conditions as all the fine material blows away and due to the high fire hazard they are hesitant to put heavy machinery up there right now. They have contacted the industrial road user from the Bridge Main to see if they can grade the Gold Bridge side from the Bridge Main Down.

Once again this year, in the interest of participant safety, Pemberton Meadows Road will be closed to vehicle traffic from 10am – 2pm on Sunday, August 20 for the Slow Food Cycle Sunday event. The road will remain open for slow moving farm vehicles.
From 9am-10am and from 2pm-3pm, the road will be shared by vehicle traffic and bike traffic. The speed limit along Pemberton Meadows Road will be reduced to 30 km/hr. Please share the road and respect each other’s goals to ensure a fun and safe day for all.
A request from a Hurley Driver:
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
The Goat Mountain Produce Stand at the bottom of the Hurley is open and has potatoes, beets, carrots and other veges. Bring cash and stop in on your way over!
