Description

Park at the end of Prarie creek road or drive up 2 miles to the Forest Service parking area. Hike all the way out Prairie Creek Road and pick up the singletrack at the end of the road. This is Prairie Lake Trail. The singletrack will cross the river then climb for a bit until you reach a Y intersection. Prairie Lake trail continues to the right while Miner Lake Trail heads to the left. The trail climbs steeply at first for about a mile. Once you reach Miner Lake the trail levels off, even descending at times until the upper junction with Prairie Lake Trail at Prairie Lake. This is a great spot to stop and enjoy the views!

Miner Lake Trail can be loose and rugged in places. Many people enjoy doing this as the downhill section of a loop with Prairie Lake Trail.
