Transportation & Maps
Lillooet is a border community joining British Columbia's Cariboo Chilcotin Coast and Vancouver, Coast & Mountains regions, and is a stop along various driving routes through these regions.
The community has excellent paved access to the interior of the province as well as to all points south. It is an entrance to the Sea to Sky corridor. While most visitors to Lillooet travel by car, rail travel, air travel, and public transportation are also options.
Lillooet is 132km/82mi from Whistler along scenic Highway 99, also known as Duffey Lake Road. Cache Creek is 90km/55mi farther along Highway 99, northeast of Lillooet. Centrally located, Lillooet also offers paved access south to Lytton and the Trans-Canada Highway via Highway 12 (64km/40mi), and west to Gold Bridge (110km/68mi) on Highway 40.
While the Lillooet Visitor Centre, Jade Trail, farmers market, and train station are all within walking distance of most downtown accommodations, a car is needed to visit some of the parks and historic sites. Vehicle rentals are available at nearby Cache Creek and Whistler. Good snow tires are recommended for driving in winter as road conditions can be dangerous.
