Trip Report

Not much to say here! This is a good hike to take the family on - including the family dog! ;-) It's only 700 meters of height gain and you can probably go up any time of the year. Hey! I'm not fussy, I take the hard peaks so I guess I'll take this one too. It was a good 3 hours on my own on a beautiful day. Hard to complain about that.

 


[The morning light was clear and warm with nice views to the west.]

 
[There was hardly any snow on the trail and a recent blow-down was cleared already. Obviously this is a popular trail!]

 
[The trail kind of disappears once you reach tree line but the way up is obvious.]


[Banded Peak shows off it's namesake.]

 
[The Moose Mountain fire lookout is just visible across the valley to the north from the summit of Prairie.]

 
[A closer look and you know where all those side roads go.]
