Trail starts in trees just off the hwy. Very Scenic route. Can be a little muddy but not too bad. Has equal amounts of ups and downs with flats. Just enough to get your heart rate up, then a little break. Will do this trail again. Very nice when you make it in the loop. Prairie Creek Trail is 5.7 km. Then we took the Prairie Link which is 2.9km. finishing on Powderface CreekTrail 2.8km. Comes back out where you park.

Ed's note: For a longer ride, see "PowderCreek PrairieCreek Loop" in trailpeak.com (trail#1183)

Lots of moderately challenging elevation gains with flats in between to recover on. Downside Super slippery when wet. I would not recommend the Prairie Creek portion in winter because the footing is horrible when wet. Comment Still a great day hike but while slogging the rain the trail was slippery

Downside With the exception of the 5.7 km along Prairie Creek Trail, you are sucked deep in the trees and you don't see much. Comment Best undertaken in a anti-clockwise direction Prairie Creek (5.7 km), Prairie Link (2.9 km), Powderface Creek (2.8 km). When dry, this a good trip for your mountain bike.

This area generally sees lower snowfall and can usually be hiked right through the winter.
