Established in 1962, this park has various climbing walls named the Shaman, Sugarloaf, Bog Wall, Leviticus, Petrifying Wall and The Brunser that provide for excellent climbing opportunities.
Browning Lake offers swimming, picnicking, fishing and a nice walking trail around the lake.
Provincial parks along the Sea-to-Sky corridor have experienced exceptional growth in visitor numbers, leading to parking congestion and illegally parked vehicles. Public safety is paramount for BC Parks, and new parking policies are in place to ensure safe access for all.
Visitors must park in designated parking lots and observe the “no parking” signs posted. BC Parks has implemented a tow-away policy for any vehicles parked illegally.
Angling is permitted in this park. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Dogs are strictly prohibited from the main beach and picnic area. Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times. 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.
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 Murrin Provincial 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.
There are climbing or rock climbing opportunities in this park. The climbing is varied from novice to expert with variety and diversity. There are approximately 250 routes. There are some bolted routes. Keep in mind that this is a very busy spot for climbing in the summer and parking is limited.
This Best Practices Guide recommends new guidelines and considerations for rock climbing route cleaning, including route development, and intends to balance climber’s needs with protecting the environment and public safety.
Murrin Provincial Park is located 2 kilometres north of Britannia Beach and 9 kilometres south of Squamish alongside Highway 99.
