Hiking terrain in the Nimpo Lake area ranges from glaciated summits to rolling grasslands, wetlands to river valleys, and dry alpine forests.
Trails and routes are suited to different levels of fitness and hiking experience, and guided hiking tours are available.
Perkins Peak is an easy two-hour hike accessible from a 30km/19mi road off Highway 20, east of Nimpo Lake. Upon reaching the peak, hikers are rewarded with panoramic views of the Monarch Icecap, the Klinaklini Icefield, and the Pantheon, Mount Waddington and Niut ranges.
The Pantheon Trail System has 11 trails that pass through various protected regions, including the northwest corner of the Elegesi Qiyus Wild Horse Preserve (pronounced "ah-legacy cayuse," meaning "Eagle Lake Henry Cayuse Wild Horse Preserve"). The trail system is best accessed by foot or on horseback.
