Yoho National Park Management Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

From January 30 to May 10, 2019, Parks Canada asked for input on what key considerations and opportunities should be addressed in drafting management plans for the mountain national parks. We asked participants to describe their vision of the parks ‘at their future best’. This feedback will inform the development of the draft management plan for Yoho National Park. Draft management plans will be posted for public review and further input once they are complete.

The What We Heard document is a summary of the comments collected during the first round of public consultations in the spring of 2019. These comments are an integral part of management planning. Views and input from various people and organizations, including Indigenous peoples, local communities and visitors play an important role in helping to shape and develop park management plans.

Read the executive summary for the mountain parks’ initial phase of consultation.

Yoho National Park

Yoho National Park lies on the western slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Vertical rock walls, waterfalls and dizzying peaks draw visitors from around the world. With exceptional hiking and sightseeing, the park offers a unique glimpse of Canada’s natural wonders, from the secrets of ancient ocean life to the power of ice and water.

    I would love to see additional hikes developed at the west end of Yoho. Are there any plans to pursue this?

    Suzanne Gaultier asked almost 2 years ago

    There are no immediate plans for new hiking trails in the west end of the park. However, we are interested in receiving input like this from Canadians on their interests and perspectives regarding the management of Yoho National Park. This comment has been recorded. It will be considered in the development of the draft park management plan.

    Thanks!
