The Grande Cache region was opened in modern times in the 1930’s and 40’s by horseback. Roads did not exist in the area until the 1950’s. Traveling by horse is a still a fairly common activity, and many commercial outfitters operate in Willmore Park, offering guided pack trips and hunting. To live the lifestyle, overnight pack trips are a wilderness experience rich in memories.
For visitors who wish to bring their own horses, you can enjoy the multi-use trails and staging areas with corrals with access into Willmore Wilderness Park. Visitors can contact Alberta Sustainable Resources for current regulations and conditions.
The Grande Cache Tourism & Interpretive Centre can provide the necessary maps and information for your horseback adventure.
