There are 11km of easy walking trails that run through the park along Holden Lake and through the marsh areas. The trails are forested, primarily with mature coastal Douglas fir, red alder and big-leaf maple. Trails are not marked but are easily identifiable and well maintained. 

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 are opportunities for canoeing or kayaking in this park.

Holden Lake offers good opportunities for angling for Cutthroat trout, however there are restrictions on the lake. Fishing is permitted as per provincial and federal fishing regulations. All anglers should check the current regulations issued by Fisheries and Oceans Canada prior to fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Wildlife viewing

This park is a popular bird watching area. A viewing platform over the marsh, approximately one kilometre from the parking lot, provides the opportunity to observe various types of ducks, Trumpeter swans, Bald eagles and turkey vultures, as well as beavers.

Pets on leash

Pets and domestic animals must be on a leash at all times. You are responsible for their behaviour, and must pack out and dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

Horseback riding

At this time, horses are permitted on the upper trail behind the service yard. Please share the designated trails with other park users. Horse riders must remove any horse excrement from the park and dispose of it in an appropriate manner.
