Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. Day trips are preferred because of lack of water in this park and to reduce human impact on the environment.


Backcountry hikers are reminded that it is a wilderness area, and no supplies or facilities are provided. Suitable clothing should be worn, and proper equipment should be used. Visitors should have appropriate maps. Anyone planning to hike overnight or longer should inform a responsible person of their intentions, and should provide estimated departure and return times. 

BC Parks does not provide rescue services. Visitors should be aware that there is no potable water in the park. Visitors must bring an ample supply of water, and should boil or filter water before use to avoid parasites. See Visitor Safety Information (park safety, hazards, wildlife safety information, health risks)

Trails are not maintained or sign-posted. Bring topographic maps and compass and know how to use them. Tell a responsible person of your destination and expected return time. 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.

Pets on leash

Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.


Park roads are steep and rough, suitable for advanced mountain bike riders only. Bring lots of drinking water. Please do not ride off road, as grassland areas are very susceptible to erosion. Bicycles must keep to roadways. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Edge Hills Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.

Horseback riding

There are horseback riding opportunities at this park. Please minimize your impact on the fragile grassland ecosystem by staying on existing trails and roads. To avoid importing weeds to the park, you must use weed free pelleted feed rather than hay or grain.


Hunting is permitted only during lawful game hunting season. Check the Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for regulations.
