There are approximately 12 km of hiking trails in the park.
These trails follow the lake shoreline and loop around the Pigeon Campground. There's an additional loop leading further into the forested areas. It is easy walking on well-groomed, grassy trails, with very little elevation gain.
The trails are also open in winter for cross-country skiing.
There are 4 golf courses and a mini golf within a short driving distance from Pigeon Lake Provincial Park.
Pigeon Lake is an important stopover for many migrating birds but is also home to a large variety of species. Waterfowl such as loons, mergansers, grebes, coots and teals can be seen on the lake at any time of day.
Keep an eye on the shoreline for waders and shorebirds such as killdeer, sandpipers and greater yellowlegs. You’ll find great blue herons and sora rails deep in the reeds and American bitterns hiding in the shallows.
Stroll through the forest to look for insect-eating warblers and birds of prey soaring through the canopy.
Whitetail and mule deer can be seen in open meadows, along roadsides or in the forest grazing on grasses and shrubs. Moose are often spotted near wetlands and marshy areas feasting on rich aquatic plants.
Coyotes are seen most frequently at dawn and dusk . They can be heard yipping and howling in the evenings as the sun ducks behind the horizon.
Porcupines, skunks, weasels and ground squirrels can all be spotted with a little luck and a lot of patience.
