About This ParkChristina Falls, Lady-Laurier Lake and abundant wildlife populations are just some of the spectacular features of Graham-Laurier Park. Situated west of the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains, the park is a remote wilderness area.
Hunting is the main recreation activity in the park. Other backcountry activities include horseback riding, hiking, wildlife and scenery viewing and fishing. Visitors are drawn to the scenic alpine vistas, the remote, wilderness character and high wildlife values.
Christina Falls, located along the Graham River, is a spectacular special feature and is accessed by the Christina Falls Trail; this undeveloped trail is 22 km long and is open to ATV only and non-motorized users.
