Denetiah Corridor Protected Area


Cabins and huts

There is a public use cabin on the northeast end of Denetiah Lake.

Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.


Keep backcountry campfires small.


The Davie Trail, which extends north from Fort Ware to Lower Post, is a wilderness route that runs along the Kechika River in the Rocky Mountain Trench. This route is only recommended for experienced backcountry hikers or horseback riders, as the area is remote and there are many hazards such as river crossings.


The Kechika River and Dall and Denetiah Lakes provide excellent opportunities for remote, wilderness canoeing/kayaking. Access to Dall and Denetiah Lakes is only by air, while the Kechika River can be reached by road from the south and north ends.


Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Dogs should be under control to avoid any potential problem with wildlife.

Horseback riding

Denetiah Corridor Protected Area provides excellent opportunities for backcountry horseback riding. Riders should be experienced and prepared for wilderness travel, as there are no designated trails.


The protected area is open to hunting. All hunters to the area should refer to the current BC Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more details and information.
