Prairie Lake Hike Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike at Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Fish and Wildlife Area travels around alluring Prairie Lake. True to its name, the impoundment is bordered by wood and meadow. The Lakeside Trail leaves the lake dam and circles around a many-fingered embayment, where you will enjoy multiple aquatic perspectives and many hills. Views also extend on the rolling prairie. Reach the head of the embayment, and then turn around at a point near the lake. The entire Lakeside Trail stretches 17 miles around Prairie Lake, if you are feeling really ambitious."
