The Lockhart Creek Park has a hiking trail that follows the north side of Lockhart Creek gaining about 800 metres of elevation over a three hour hike. An old cabin site about two hours up is a favourite destination. Though open to wilderness recreation, the park has no facilities or marked trails and is not regularly serviced. Check our Trail Report [PDF] for bear and safety information. 

Visitors should be self-sufficient and proficient in back country travel practices. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.

Pets on leash
Dogs in backcountry parks must be on leash and under control at all times. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

Cycling is permitted, but only on Lockhart Creek trail and by experienced mountain bike riders. The grade is steep and extreme caution must be used on blind corners and switchbacks.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Lockhart Creek 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
Horseback riding on designated trails is permitted.

Hunting is allowed in this park during designated hunting season. Please check the BC Hunting and Trapping Regulations for more details.
