One hundred years ago, the Canadian Robert Dollar Company of Dollarton logged the lower slopes of Burke Mountain with a steam railway. Because of this the peak was called Dollar Mountain by the early residents. Rail lines snaked in from [Port Moody] along the sidehill of Westwood slope, across the Coquitlam River on a trestle and up to the timber on Burke Mountain. As for many years, the area was depopulated bush logging and gravel mining continued with vigour.
The highest mountain in the park is Pinecone Peak 2027 m (6650 ft).
The Park contains parts of the traditional territory of the Katzie first nation.
