    TAKE A HIKE!!  This trail is well flaged and easy to follow since the hike. From the Prarie Lake boat landing on county rd. 61: cross 61 to the pink ribbon and follow the ditch toward the river. look for the blue ribbons leading into the woods to the south. Soon you will leave the woods for the snomo trail; cross the bridge and continue south. Look for flags between the snomo trail and the river. The trail near the bridge is rough, but the further you go the better it gets.

    this route is now flagged from cty rd 61 near the prarie river bridge to the access road for the icc trails.  it should be easy for anyone to find, especially after the hike on saturday when the trail should be well packed.
