There are no developed trails in the park at this time although numerous, short, undeveloped trails do exist. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
Canoeing and kayaking may occur on the Skeena and Bulkley Rivers flowing past the park. There are possible put-in/take-out locations in and adjacent to the park. An old boat launch outside the park adjacent to the northeast corner provides a take-out for recreational and commercial rafters, canoeists and kayakers after they have floated the Bulkley canyon, and may be used for launching small power boats during favourable river conditions.
