I enjoy this trail, have hiked it many times, it's about a 20 minute hike to the Crabill homestead, in which you hike through some old growth trees which are inspiring, then at the homestead there is a wonderful view of the lake and surrounding areas, great hike for the family!
Was a nice trail- little bit overgrown but a good easy trail. Limited hills, so easy on the legs! The available map was a little off- the trail does keep going farther than than what's on the map.
Had a few good views of the lake and some good lead color yesterday!
We used this app to help us find Buckhorn trail. My children and I have spend a lot of time hiking. while we enjoyed being lead down Jeweltoed 3 times and about a mile down Buckcreek path, we had decided to end our search and to explore the Prarie. Crazy enough, we accidently found Buckhorn path at the end of the Prarie path.
Went a couple weeks ago and while I can see the potential in the trail, about halfway through I stopped and turned around because it was so overgrown! There were a ton of spider webs which just goes to show that its not hiked very often. If the trail was better taken care of it would be an amazing, easy, trail for a quick few hours of hiking, but that wasn't the case. I was really disappointed it wasn't better taken care of.
This trail is longer than said here. I've never finished it though, I turn around after a few hours. The trail can be small at times, but it's nice to be in the woods. You are alone. My dog always loved this trail. It has a creek close to the beginning, so on our way back, he'd cool off there before we could finish.
Not my favorite trail. The trail is easy to hike mostly a grass path, a couple nice views of the lake. You walk pass a camp ground and multiple cabins. I would prefer to be in a more wooded area. If you are in to disk golf the course looked pretty cool.

Out and back trail with trailhead at Prairie View picnic shelter. Trail appears to not get much use. I went out 2 miles and turn around. Tough to follow at times.

This trail is hard to follow because no one uses it. The only good thing about it is that there are little areas off to the side where you can cool off in the water.
