Pets and 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 in the backcountry must be under control at all times. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to the potential for problems with bears and other wildlife.
Horseback riding is permitted. There are some trailhead corrals. As grazing is limited, feed should be packed into Sylvan Pass, Queen Mary Lake and Middle Fork White River meadows. Use pellets as they do not contain weed seeds.
Routes are also not maintained and at best, include intermittent stretches where a beaten path is available. Moderate scrambling and travel through fairly dense undergrowth and occasionally through tangled slide areas is required. These routes offer excellent scenic opportunities, however, they are not recommended for innexperienced riders. Route-finding skills and an aptitude for orienteering are essential, and visitors need to obtain the appropriate topographical maps prior to arrival. Off-trail travel increases your chances of encountering a bear, so travel cautiously.
There are many climbing and mountaineering opportunities in the park.
Attention Hunters: To avoid human-bear conflicts and out of respect for non hunters, please hang all game meat at least 75 metres away from all camps and cabins and hang game three to five metres above the ground.
Do not butcher your game animal or dispose of the carcass or entrails on or near any road or trail. This may endanger other hunters or recreationists.
The park is open to hunting. All hunters to the area should refer to the current BC Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis.
There are cross-country, ski-touring and snowshoeing opportunities within Height of the Rockies Park as well as Connor Lakes and Abbot Ridge.
