From Pemberton, continue Highway 99 north. Upon arrival in Mount Currie, follow the signs towards D’arcy (Picture 2).
Note: There is limited service in this area. Please fill up your gas tank in Mount Currie or at a local gas station in D’arcy.
Upon arrival in D’arcy, stay left on to Pemerton Portage Rd and at the train track turn left towards Highline Rd.
As you can see in the picture 2 above, there is a small sign for Highline road right beside train track.
Please follow that sign as seen on Picture 1. Enjoy the Highline Rd for approx. 20 kms and then you will arrive in Seton Portage.
Enjoy your Highline road Journey with magnificent views of Anderson lake.
Highlight of our trip – Creative Caboose Cafe in Seton Portage. It is a small gallery cafe with a big heart of a warm couple. They have yummy, fresh, natural food along with a creative art gallery and souvenirs. Please find the link for their cafe:
Tip: You can either take the Highline road back to D’arcy, or drive to Lillooet via Moha through Lillooet Pioneer road. This route takes you through beautiful canyons, and rugged terrain. We took this route to complete the loop. The distance from Seton Portage to Lillooet is around 72kms.
