Description: The name of the park is derived from the white limestone and karst topography for which the area is internationally known. The park’s karst surfaces – a distinctive topography in which the landscape is largely shaped by the dissolving action of water on carbonate bedrock, usually limestone, dolomite or marble – are significant and easy to see. White Ridge also features an extensive cave system and protects important deer and Roosevelt elk habitat.

Things to Do: 

Hiking - There are no developed trails at this park. User-created routes do exist into and through the park. They are often unmarked and steep, exposed and very rough. Use caution when hiking on these routes.

Hunting - Portions of this park are open to hunting for specific species. Hunters must have valid licences and tags.

Spelunking - White Ridge Provincial Park is known for its extensive cave system. Most caves are suitable for experienced cavers only.
