Willmore Wilderness Park is situated in west central Alberta, sandwiched between the B.C. border, Jasper National Park and the Continental Divide. Willmore's landscape is typical Rocky Mountain, with foothills and mountainous terrain. Peaks along the Continental Divide exceed 3,000 metres in elevation. The Willmore is home to over 20% of Alberta's bighorn sheep and mountain goats and about 600 woodland caribou. Other mammal species include moose, elk, black and grizzly bear. Access to the park is limited to foot or horseback; all the rangers do their patrols on horseback. There are over 750 km of trails following early trade routes and some old forestry roads. Guide-outfitters lead visitors through the park in the same way their predecessors did over a century ago.
