It’s always a good sign when your trail starts in a well-named place. We start this hike at Summit Prairie, a beautiful location with a well-earned name. The trail rides the crest of the stunning Quartz Creek Ridge, running through wonderful forest and broad wildflower meadows. You can meander at will for 1 mile, or 5, along the ridgetop meadows as you enjoy the views down into the deep valleys of Quartz and French Creeks.
