Details

This hike is part of 3 trails which loops back to where you start.We will park at the Powderface trail head and go for 2.8 km on Powderface Tr.then go north on Prairie Link Tr. for 2.9 km. then intersect with Prairie Creek Tr. which will take us another 5.7km back to where we started.It will take us thru open meadow aspen forest and interesting canyon walls.Toward the halfway point of the Prairie Creek section you rise to a high point above Prairie Creek which has dropoff steep canyon walls.This would be a good place for lunch.This should be a good hike for the autumm colours.We will leave from the A+W parking lot right beside the Safeway.If anyone is coming on the LRT let me know and I can swing over to pick you up,since we go right by there on the way out.You can phone or text me at[masked].Please bring proper hiking gear such as hiking boots, warm jacket,head gear and gloves,as this time of year you can encounter winter weather.This would be a good beginner hike as it contains no steep uphill and is only 11.4 km. long.Also bring your lunch,water and snacks along with shoes to change out of your wet/muddy boots and a plastic bag.We will go at a moderate pace with plenty of stops for pictures and rest and water breaks.I don't know the elevation since it is part of 3 trails and is gentle up and down I have done this trail at least 3 times already.There may be a few washout area's on the Prairie Creek section which we may have to detour around,
