  • Site Description: Perkins Peak is about 36 km southwest of Tatla Lake, in the Chilcotin region. Perkins Peak has an elevation of 2842 m / 9324 ft, and it is in the northern part of the Pantheon Range. This trail is accessed via old mining tracks. A relatively short but steep "scramble" along a rocky ridgeline takes hikers to the summit of Perkins Peak, offering incredible views of surrounding peaks in the Pantheon, Niut and Waddington ranges, as well as views of nearby Miner and Colwell Lakes. Due to the trail's remote location, the steep and uneven mountainous terrain, and the need for some route-finding where the trail becomes less obvious, this trail is recommended only for those with backcountry hiking experience.

  • Driving Directions: From the community of Tatla Lake, travel west on Hwy 20 for approximately 23 km and then turn left/south onto the Miner Lake Forest Service Road. Travel approximately 18 km and make a sharp right. From here, follow the main route for about 1.3 km and keep right. Go another 100 meters and keep left. Just past the 20 km board, stay straight. At about the 20.9 km mark keep left. Go another 400 meters and turn right, passing through 2 large boulders on either side of the road. From this point the road is very rough, narrow and slow going, and 4x4 or ATV is recommended. Travel 3.9 km and keep left. Go another 200 meters and keep left. Go another 100 meters and turn left at the deactivated road sign. Proceed 800 meters and keep right. (Or turn left here to access the Chromium Creek-Emerald Lake Trail). Follow the old mining track that runs parallel to a creek for about 2.2 km to an alpine lake and park here. From here, the trail follows the switchbacks of the mining track north of the lake, accessing the northeast ridge of Perkins Peak, and a relatively short ridge ramble takes you to the official summit of Perkins Peak. There is a register at the summit to sign your name and find out about others that have successfully made the trek. The trail head is located at 51�49'31.89"N 125� 1'54.95"W
