Cornwall Hills Provincial Park is known for its wide variety of recreational activities, from wilderness hiking to hang-gliding. The 1,188-hectare park also protects forests of Engelmann spruce and sub-alpine fir, as well as some patches of old-growth. Together with areas of open grasslands, the park’s diverse vegetation provides habitat for a variety of wildlife, including mule deer, cougar, blue grouse and many bird species. The park also contains the only active Forest Service Lookout Tower in the Kamloops District.
Camping is not permitted in Cornwall Hills and no facilities are provided. Park water is not drinkable, so visitors should bring their own supply.
Hiking is available on a limited number of established roads in this area. Visitors wanting to hike through the meadows should limit their impact on the grasses and flowers. You can mountain biking on the forestry road leading up to the park. Visitors should be aware this is a very steep, long road and bikers should be in good condition. If visitors access the park by bicycle, riding must be restricted to the established roads in the area.
Cornwall Hills Provincial Park is located 15km southwest of Cache Creek, British Columbia. From Cache Creek, travel south on the Trans-Canada Highway for 17km, then turn off onto the gravel Hat Creek Road that travels north along Oregon Jack and Two Sisters Creeks. At 13 km take the turn to the Three Sisters Forestry Recreation site and continue up the forestry road. The section of road near the recreation site can be impassable during rainy periods due to deep mud holes.
