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.

The first time I hiked Prairie it was a good 3 hours on my own on a beautiful day. Hard to complain about that. The second time was 4 hours with the family. I have friends who make this mountain a weekly training run and now in 2024 after moving to SW Calgary, I’ve done over 400 laps of it myself.
