I’m not sure why this trail was given a 1 rating but I strongly disagree. It is a beautiful hike that goes to Prairie Lake. You can make this a loop by including Miner Lake. River crossings may be challenging during spring snow runoff. Most trails maintained by the Forest Service need work due to a lack of funding. The Idaho Trails Association is trying to fill this void by putting together teams every summer to work on trails throughout the state. Visit to view their projects and consider volunteering! It is a great experience.
