The park protects a wide range of landscapes, including mountain peaks, lakes, streams and wetlands, and the Sechelt area community watershed. Elevations in the Tetrahedron range from 900 to 1,800 metres and include Tetrahedron Peak, Panther Peak and Mount Steele. Recreational opportunities at this park are limited but include hiking, cross country skiing and overnight use of the cabins.
Overnight use is restricted to the four rustic cabins maintained by the Tetrahedron Outdoor Club, and are available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Donations are accepted and are used to help maintain the cabins.
The firewood supplied at the cabins is provided by BC Parks and the Tetrahedron Outdoor Club, and is for winter use only. It is extremely expensive as it is delivered by helicopter. Misuse of firewood may result in the loss of this privilege. Only use the wood stove when absolutely necessary. Be self-sufficient and carry a fuel burning stove for cooking.
