Description

Park at the end of Prairie 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. Prairie Lake Trail will cross the river then climb for a bit until you reach a Y intersection. Take the right route to stay on Prairie Lake Trail for the most enjoyable climb. The trail will continue to climb until you reach Prairie Lake. This is a great spot to stop and enjoy the views!

From here you can head back the way you came, but many prefer to head back down on Miner Lakes Trail to make a loop.
