Certainly this road is beautiful with the lakes and mountain scenery, but it is the extras of wildlife sightings that add an unexpected dimension to this trip.

We made the trip on our Goldwing from Whistler to Kamloops and would not have made it in one day if we stopped everywhere we had a view. Simply awesome. For motorcyclists, the asphalt was better than expected and there are lots of twisties and...More

I love taking this road. It's one of those twisty windy roads that has spectacular views, hairpin curves, plummeting cliffs, and a breath-taking lake in the middle. Even in the winter, the road is maintained very well. One of my favorite things about the road...More

Had the truck, great place to get some real use out of it, the scenery was only stunning, and seems like there was no-one around when we were there- look out for some bald eagles!

Very little gravel. Just a couple of short stretches, bridges and culvert construction

One short stretch south of Lillooet is unpaved due to a new bridge going in, but otherwise totally paved.

Hi ALL past users of "Duffy Lake Road" Hwy 99! We are hiring a 32" RV (with 3 bikes on the back as well!!) in late June this year and have planned a route using this road. I have read all your comments (about braking and switchbacks!) and i did run it past the RV hire company to see if it was a "NO GO road" but they did not comment. I am experienced in driving large vehicles and have a PCV (Double Decker Passenger Bus Licence -UK) and drove 12 metre buses all over Brighton UK for 7 years, but these are different beasts and i have never driven one before! In all of your opinions... is this road SAFE and practical to drive with an RV of the length? (I am very considerate driver and will be contiually pulling over to allow faster vehicles to pass). I don't want to get half way along and get stuck! We have all day to get from Squamish to Lilliooet. Is that practical in this size RV? Thank you in advance for all of your helpful advice. Paul - Sussex, UK.
