One of the focuses of the park is to provide hiking opportunities. These vary from the regularly maintained trail around Byers Lake to back country routes like the trail along Troublesome Creek that receive very little maintenance attention. Hikers must be familiar with map reading skills to stay on route. Hikers seeking the best access to country above timberline are advised to begin at Little Coal Creek Trail head.
