Natural Region Description

Although located largely in the Rocky Mountain Natural Region, this park includes 26 square kilometres of the upper foothills sub-region of the Foothills Natural Region. The Solomon Creek area is part of one of the most diverse upper foothills habitat complexes in Alberta. Habitats range from dense coniferous forests through mixed and aspen woods to tall shrub communities, grassy slopes and wet meadows. It is one of three known locations for pygmy whitefish in Alberta. The park provides winter range for elk, deer and bighorn sheep. It's also home to moose, grizzly bears and black bears. Elevations range from 2385 metre (Boule Roche peak) to 1005 metres (where Solomon Creek leaves the park before entering Athabasca River).
