Hike to a Hidden Viewpoint of Seton Lake, British Columbia
Canada › Seton Lake Pull Out
Added by Kaila Walton
This is quite a short hike to an awesome viewpoint of the beautiful Seton Lake near Lillooet BC Canada. 100% worth the stop.
On highway 99 (Duffy Lake Road) just outside of Lillooet there is Seton Lake which is so very picturesque in its own way. It's turquoise coloured and surrounding it are cliffs and desert-like mountains.
To get to the stunning view point there is a big pull out just before the last switch back on the road. Park there and across the road there is the start of a trail that has been walked on enough to be able to see it without it being maintained. Follow it along the steep cliff and as you get farther along the steepness of the trail increases. Keep going along the rocky cliff until you can clearly see the switchback and the lake a little farther off.
It's a beautiful place to sit on the edge and watch the world go by as you relax taking in the amazing views. Plus it's a good way to stretch your legs after driving for a few hours on Highway 99.
The exact coordinates are as follows (to help you better find the lookout and the pullout):
Pull out : 50.662457, -121.990923
Lookout : 50.660328, -121.986269
- Good runners or hiking shoes

Absolutely amazing spot!
We hiked the short 1km up to the viewpoint and were blown away by the views. Not only do you have a phenomenal view of the loop on the highway and Seton Lake, but in the opposite direction you can see down the mountain range that Duffey Lake Raod follows just South of Lillooet. I would highly recommend checking out this viewpoint and camping at one of the four BC Forest Service recreation sites South of this hike on Duffey Lake Road(Highway 99). Thanks for sharing Kaila :)
Short But Amazing
This hike wasn't long but it was stunningly beautiful and a fun hike along the cliffs. If you are road tripping thru and need to get out and stretch the legs this is a perfect spot.
