The Seymour Hatchery is located just below the Seymour Falls Dam in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve. To get to us you will need to drive up Lillooet Road past Capilano University until you get to the parking lot at the top of Lillooet Road and then either bike, walk or run a 12km trail to the hatchery. The trail is paved for the first 10km and turns into a well maintained gravel trail for about 2km through majestic old growth forest.
