Though the prairie will take years to fully develop, this easy and flat Prairie Trail leads visitors from the parking lot into what could become a birding hotspot in just a few years. Great place for wildflower viewing. Accessibility: This packed dirt, gravel, and mowed grass trail is estimated to typically be at least 4 feet wide. There is also a wooden boardwalk and wooden watchtower excursion, the watchtower is not wheelchair or stroller accessible while the boardwalk is. The slope of this route is estimated to usually be flat to gentle, around +/- 3% grade. There is one moderately steep section that reaches 6% grade (downhill). Trail goers using mobility equipment like a wheelchair or stroller may need some assistance here. There is 1 ADA-compliant car parking spot with an access aisle at the small paved trailhead lot.Show more

There is a large parking lot with bathrooms at the trailhead. It is a very popular trailhead along the Towpath and passes over Beaver Marsh just past the Ira Road trailhead and continues along through some of the most beautiful areas of the entire 85 mile Towpath.

Accessibility: This concrete, asphalt, crushed hard gravel, wooden bridge and boardwalk trail is estimated to typically be at least 5 feet wide. According to the National Park website, this full trail may not be fully wheelchair accessible due to rocky sections along the north end near Everett.

There are 6 ADA-compliant car parking spots with 4 access aisles at the large paved trailhead lot.
