Bear Prairie Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is a long day hike or overnighter into the heart of the Gates of the Mountains Wilderness.
The 28,560-acre Gates of the Mountains Wilderness has open parks, deep canyons, and craggy peaks, but no lakes. More than compensating for this void, however, is the area’s rich history.
From the Refrigerator Canyon Trailhead Trail 259 gradually climb about a quarter of a mile to Refrigerator Canyon. Even on the hottest summer day, it is cool in this extremely steep, narrow canyon."
