Harrison Hut Route Sketch

The hut can be reached via the Lillooet South FSR (aka Overseer Main). To reach the FSR from Vancouver drive north Pemberton passing through Squamish and Whistler. At Pemberton Portage Rd turn left. Follow the road to a roundabout where you go left onto Birch Rd. At the end of Birch Rd make a right onto Pemberton Meadows Road. Continuing on this road 9km past the Lillooet River FSR turnoff leads you straight to the start of the Lillooet South FSR. At this point reset your odometer and follow the following direction to the trailhead:

0.0 km Sign "End of Public Road"
8.9 km Go Right
18.9 km Go Left
23.7 km Go Left (2WDs park here)
26.0 km Go Right
28.0 km Go Right
29.0 km Go Left
29.1 km Go Left
29.6 km Trailhead

Summer

Use the Harrison Hut route.

Winter: Access during mid winter is problematic. The Lillooet River (North side) FSR is usually not plowed, and commonly gated at km 9 (just past Hurley FSR turn-off) due to avalanche danger, and in any case doesn't get you back to the S side of the Lilloet River as the bridge is gone. The new South Side route is not plowed past the last farm. This makes mid-winter access a long and arduous affair, adding roughly 40-45km of travel along logging roads, but people have skied to/from the hut over the Pemberton Icecap from either South Creek or even the Brew Hut. Generally it is not accessed, in winter, as a simple weekend trip.
