Hope Pass and Nicomen Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Part of this trip is in Manning Provincial Park, the rest in the Cascade Recreation Area. It is a delightful area with historical connections. The trail dates back to its building by Royal Engineers in the early 1860s, and it remained a major packhorse road between Hope and Princeton until Highway 3 was completed in 1949. The trip is described as a clockwise loop, which leads up the Skaist River 8 km (5 mi) to the Grainger Creek junction, continues up the Skaist to Hope Pass, runs south across the plateau to Nicomen Lake, descends Grainger Creek back to the Skaist River at the junction and then heads back to the highway. The Skaist River section is also a horse trail."
