Although West Bragg Creek is designated as a winter recreation area, primarily for skiing, it is popular with cyclists, hikers and horseback riders as well. Ranchers still have leases to graze their cattle there in the summer. Loggers are clear-cutting forest and from time to time oil and gas companies drill wells and develop sour gas extraction.

There is considerable gas extraction development work in the area with lots of heavy equipment and trucks of all sizes. Caution is advised.
