Marble Range Park is so named because of its unusual karst (limestone) topography. These mountains feature caves, sinkholes and disappearing streams, as well as cliffs, chasms, and crenellated ridges. The park protects populations of California bighorn sheep and mule deer. There are some rough trails, popular with local hikers, hunters and horseback riders.
Limestone karst formations can be accessed and viewed from high in the alpine.
Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. The park is open year-round if accessible.
If you must have a fire, please burn only dead and down wood, and be sure to extinguish the fire fully. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil so please use it conservatively, if at all. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
The trails of the Marble Range are rough and steep, not maintained, and very infrequently patrolled. 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/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. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
Horseback riding is popular in the Marble Range, and may be arranged through several guest ranches in the area.
This park is open to hunting. Please refer to the British Columbia Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
