    Recreation Notes

    • Maps: There are currently no maps of Willmore available to purchase. The Northern Rockies Trail Map shows trails that can help with trip planning. For other maps, please contact the Switzer Park Visitor Centre at 780-865-5600 or the Hinton Parks Office at 780-865-8395.
    • Backcountry Camping: Visitors to Willmore must be fully prepared for wilderness travel. Exercise caution when locating and building campfires. During periods of high fire hazard, campfires may not be permitted. To prevent encounters with bears, take precautions with food & garbage storage. Litter that can't be burned must be packed out.
    • Backcountry Hiking: Early fur trading activities created the trail network that is the basis for the 750 km of trails in Willmore. Trails provide access along all major eastern valleys and form connections between valleys via high mountain passes. There are few trails west of the Smoky River. Only minimal trail maintenance occurs.
    • Horseback riding: There are hundreds of kilometres of equestrian trails in Willmore. (Only minimal trail maintenance occurs.)
    • Hunting: There are hunting seasons in Willmore for trophy sheep, moose, elk, white-tailed deer and mule deer. Refer to the Alberta Guide to Hunting Regulations for detailed information.
    • Geotourism Area: This park is part of the Alberta Northern Rockies.
