About the Park

Cathedral Park is a very popular hiking area, but the season can be very short due to the high elevation and potential for snow. The season is generally mid June to mid October. No vehicles are allowed into the core area on the private access road. Cathedral Lakes Lodge provides jeep transportation service (fee for service) from the base area to the Lodge next to Quiniscoe Lake in the park’s core area, 16 km away. Firewood available for sale. Due to remote location, this park accepts CASH ONLY.
Backcountry permits are available at www.bcparks.ca and can be purchased 2 weeks prior to your arrival date. Check website for updates.
