Cathedral Park is southwest of Keremeos, bounded on the south by the British Columbia-Washington State border, on the east by Ewart Creek, and on the west and north by the Ashnola River.

Access is via Highway 3: 3km west of Keremeos, the Ashnola Road leaves the highway and crosses a red covered bridge, 10km further the pavement ends and the Ashnola Forest Service Road begins and follows the Ashnola River into the park. This road extends 48km upstream to the south end of the Ashnola Valley.

There are three hiking routes that provide access to the park’s core from the Ashnola River corridor: Ewart Creek, Lakeview, and Wall Creek. These routes are described on the hiking page. No vehicles into core area on private access road, hike-in only to core area.

A jeep service, operated by Cathedral Lakes Resort, provides transportation between their privately owned holdings on the Ashnola River and Quiniscoe Lake in the park’s core area, a distance of 16km.
