Distance 6.8 km one way, height gain 509 m, moderate
A moderately strenuous exploration road, then trail, traverses the full length of the valley to Three Trail Pass.
Start: Hwy. 66 (Elbow Falls trail) at Powderface parking lot.
Difficulty: Easy to start becoming more strenuous in the higher reaches.
Note: Most often people don't go all the way to Three Trail Pass, preferring to combine the easier first section of trail with Prairie Link #22 and Prairie Creek trails to make an 11.8 km loop. Other short options that also connect with Prairie Creek trail: #24 Corri Robb trail over Vents Ridge and #23 Second Gap trail.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
