It's approx. 88km from Sasquatch Inn (long jarring drive) but the road in has been greatly improved from what I hear (havent done it since you had to cross a raging creek/river) but from what I hear its graded and bridged and don't be surprised to see a Honda Civic there. Good luck hope there's no garbage.

just done that trip was good conditions past tipella
skookumchuck hotsprings is also on the trail and well worth the stop for a small donation you can relax in a hottub filled by the springs:p it is anice drive
the west harrison fsr is good upto about 65 km mark then a little rough trail gets narrow in some sections past bremner creek to
tretheway creek then widens and smooths again
have fun and allow a full day
you can also travel west side of lillooet river for 3/4 of the way to duffy lake rd but will miss hot springs:canadian :beer

We were just at the Sloquet Hot Springs a couple of months ago. The road is 2wd the whole way. No problem at all.

To get there, drive all the way up the west side of Harrison Lake to the Tipella Logging Camp. You should stop at the office there and let them know where you're going so they can radio any logging trucks bearing down on you. Once past the Tipella logging camp (about 5k) you will cross a bridge. Take the turnoff to the left immediately past the bridge and stay left all the way up to the springs, (about 8k after the turnoff).

The springs are fantastic, and relatively pristine, (such that I hesitated posting directions...) There are some nice campsites there, but they are not maintained by anyone so make sure you carry out whatever you brought with you.

A nice way to return is to continue on the FSR all the way to Pemberton and return via the Sea-to-Sky.
