For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
A 6.5 km hiking trail to the peak provides a panoramic view of Stuart Lake and the mountains to the north. The elevation gain is about 790 metres (2400 feet). Allow four to six hours for the return hike.
Hikers should carry a supply of drinking water as there is no potable water available on the trail. A gazebo is available at the peak of Mount Pope. This is an ideal spot to have a snack and enjoy the 360 degree view.
