Default Haylmore FSR conditions

Hi all,

I'm curious for the road conditions up the Haylmore FSR. Does anyone have an update on whether it's open and what kind of vehicle does it require?
I'm thinking of a hike up to the twin lakes. Thanks guys!

Might be washed out? There was a large flood in the area during a thunderstorm on the last day of July that damaged debris flow barriers at Seton Portage.

thanks for the quick reply. Do you know where one could find out for sure? Is there a company that maintains the road that i could contact?
I've never been in the area before and it would be quite the drive for me from Langley only to find out its not passable.

Thanks!

If you can't drive up, then there are a ton of other places in the area to go to. Not a huge deal.

hi; I just spoke to the people at the Sea-to-Sky forest service district-they said there is no industrial service on this road and they also don't maintain it and haven't been up recently, so they can't comment on the condition of the road. What they do know is that if there is a slide it is usually a rock slide at around the 8km mark-and vehicles can't make it past 14km mark. there is a grizzly that uses the trail near Johnny creek but he is not habituated and just passes through, but to be aware They asked if you get more information to call them so they can update their website. 604-898-2100. the website is https://www.for.gov.bc.ca/dsq/Engine...nformation.htm

I hiked up to Twin Lakes a couple weekends ago on August 13th. I can report that the road is easily drivable by HC 2WD vehicle to the 14km point. From there your only options are an ATV or your feet. There is a small parking area at the 14km mark which is big enough for perhaps 5-6 vehicles.

We took a 2WD SUV up the FSR. Overall I thought the road wasn't bad (no water bars) but I wouldn't want to take my car up. With that said, we did see an old Mazda at the trail head. So depending on how much you like your vehicle, it can be done.

Actually snail there is a third option from the end of the driveable road and that's bicycles. Spectrum and I pushed and road ours up past the cabin. Beautiful area.

Bringing a bike would be a great idea. The ATV track is in good shape so you could cover ground pretty quickly. Here are some pics of what the ATV track looked like as of Aug. 13th:

damn that alpine is beautiful .... Do you actually see ATVs on that trail though? Because i thought that operation of motor vehicles above 1700m was prohibited in that area.
