Located on the south side of the road, just north of the junction of Cerise Creek and Cayoosh Creek. It is just west of a prominent "Avalanche" sign on the road.. The parking lot is on the south side of the highway, and holds about 10 cars. There are usually cars there on any given weekend, since this is the parking spot for Keith's Hut and Matier. Once you have parked, you can climb down the steep bank of the highway, and cross Cayoosh Creek on a little wooden bridge. Continue south, see description of Cerise Creek Winter Route.
The parking lot is usually plowed.
Access: From Pemberton, drive west thru Mount Currie, and set your odometer to zero at the right hand turn in Mount Currie. Climb up the road, past the Joffre Lakes parking lot, past the Marriott Basin parking lot, and continue till you are opposite Cerise Creek. See the Duffey Lake road description.
