There are four main hiking trails in the park:

  • One trail begins in Llewellyn Inlet and leads to a knoll that provides good views of the Llewellyn Glacier. This is an 800 m long trail with 55 m of elevation gain to the viewpoint. It is possible to continue beyond the viewpoint, but the trail is not maintained.
  • The Mt. Adams Trail starts in Sloko Inlet and climbs 170 m over its 4.5 km length. The trail leads to a glacial lake at the base of the spectacular Llewellyn Glacier.
  • The start of the Sloko Lake Trail is also located in Sloko Inlet. This 2 km trail has 145 m of elevation gain and takes you to the shores of Sloko Lake.
  • The Shortest Railway Trail is an easy 4 km walk along an abandoned rail line, known as the Taku Tram, from Scotia Bay on Atlin Lake to the historic buildings of Taku Landing on Tagish Lake.
  • Google Earth KMZ File of the Altlin Park Trails [KMZ] (must have Google Earth or other supporting software)

Swimming is possible but the water is very cool. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.


Kayaking and canoeing are popular on Atlin Lake. Anyone planning to paddle Atlin Lake should come to the park well prepared and with kayaking/canoeing experience. This large glacial fed lake is subject to high winds and consequently rough waters. The water temperature is an average of 4 degrees Celsius which means hypothermia in mere minutes. Watch the weather and always wear life-jackets. Canoeist may want to consider spray skirt. Topographic maps are highly recommended due to the vastness of landscape.


The waters of Atlin Lake contain lake trout, Arctic grayling, Dolly Varden and two species of white fish. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.


Hunting is allowed in the park. All hunters to the area should refer to the current BC Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
