The Hurley River Road is open to vehicle traffic in the summer months only, usually from June – October. It is maintained to a wilderness standard that deters most 2wd vehicles. It’s a wild ride you will never forget and the scenery is breathtaking! The Hurley is a 74km rough dirt road which starts at the end of the Pemberton Meadows. After crossing the Lillooet River, the Hurley climbs over Railroad Pass (4, 500ft) and down to Gold Bridge or Bralorne. Expect mountain driving conditions. Drive with your headlights on and use caution. Watch for oncoming traffic and wildlife. Please use 4×4 when climbing to avoid washboards.
Winter driving conditions can be encountered all year long on the Hurley Road. A spare tire is essential! Pioneer Paul runs the tire repair shop in Gold Bridge 250-238-2584 and he is a busy guy because of the Hurley Road! Gas is available in Gold Bridge with a credit card only, no cash.
In the winter, ride your snowmobile over from the Pemberton Meadows to Bralorne or Gold Bridge. Road is groomed by Backcountry Snow Cats who operate a catski operation from Hope Creek which is located on the North side of the pass. Reg and Kathy groom the Hurley Road in the winter and build and maintain the parking spot at the end of the road on the Pemberton side. Please show your appreciation and respect by staying off their marked runs. If you find yourself in one of thier zones by mistake, please make your way to the marked road and follow it out. All runs and roads are marked with bamboo and signage.
