This park is situated in the Dezaiko Range of the Rocky Mountains, approximately 160 km northeast of Prince George. This park protects the internationally significant Close To The Edge cave, which has the deepest shaft and is the third deepest overall cave (472m) in Canada. The cave was bottomed in 2001 . The primary shaft drops 255 m straight down, and its diameter varies considerably (up to 30m) . There are also additional, smaller caves in the park.
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. There is a very rough trail following Hedrick Creek and then a route to Close-To-The-Edge cave location. Hedrick Creek must be crossed via a hand operated cable car.
There are spelunking opportunities in the various caves in the park. Only experienced spelunkers should attempt these caves.
This park is open to hunting. Please consult the Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
This park is located approximately 160 km northeast of Prince George, which is the closest community, town or city. The Pass Lake Forest Service Road leads to this park, but it is currently blocked at the McGregor River bridge, which is about 20 km from the park.
