Gold Rush Ramble

Starting in Harrison Mills, at the junction of the Harrison and Fraser Rivers, the Gold Rush Ramble takes the rider on a journey along the edge of rivers and lakes and through valleys and over mountain passes as you make your way to Lillooet, where in the 1850s, gold was discovered in the region of the Fraser River. 

With the serious amount of climbing to be had along this route, it is not to be taken lightly. The route also takes you along remote, out of the way roads, that often lack resupply and lodging options. Leaving Pemberton, this is where the real climbing will begin and you will have an amazing journey into the mountains as you make your way into Lillooet, one of the hottest climate regions in Canada.
