The Seton Lake Lookout is a short hike to a popular viewpoint that looks out to Seton Lake with a U-shaped portion of the Sea To Sky Highway in the foreground. The trail is located just south of the town of Lillooet, just off the Duffey Lake Road portion of the Sea To Sky Highway.
From the gravel parking area, carefully cross the Sea To Sky Highway to the path on the opposite side. Be very careful crossing the highway as vehicles are often traveling quickly through the downhill section.
Once on the other side of the highway, follow the trail along a flat section as it passes a few trees then nears a viewpoint on the left. Just beyond this viewpoint, the trail climbs quickly for a short distance until it meets a flat section, which appears to be an old dirt road.
Go left and follow the wide route as it gradually ascends until it reaches a rocky section. Climb up onto the rock, then follow the worn path up the slow, being careful of the drop-offs on each side. Once at the top, you have reached the scenic viewpoint where you can see the entire U-Shaped section of the highway as well as Seton Lake.
After enjoying the view, carefully make your way back down the rocks and follow the trail back downhill. Go right and down the steep section, passing the view point on the right and returning to the highway.
