Take the interpretative hike to see more of the rocks and lichen of the Canadian Shield. The only wildlife I spotted was a ptarmigan but it was easy to see why the region supports caribou when you see the large quantities of reindeer lichen. There are several places where you get elevation gain (rare in the relatively flat north) to... More

The trail at Prelude Lake is well marked and has many information panels along the way to explain flora, fauna, and geological formations. Very interesting with great views. The second half is especially scenic!

It's so far from everywhere that you might think it would be a chore to get here, but it's a beautiful drive along the Ingraham Trail, and this is (I think) the largest boat launch along that road, which has many other lakes and good stops.

We stayed at Prelude Lake with our trailer in early June for six days. The two hiking trails are beautiful, so glad I ended up doing the nature trail. Got some beautiful pictures from there. The park is laid out fairly well, it's nice to have the marina there if you want to boat or fish and the park attendant... More

I am a resident and hike there often. There is a well marked trail with fine viewpoints for those who wish to see Shield Country at its best. Watch out for bears in the spring and fall. Camping available, but reservations needed.

My husband and I were in Yellowknife on a convention and our hosts brought us out to their cottage on Prelude Lake. We met up at Prelude Lake Territorial Park where our group were shuttled across the lake in pontoon boats rented right on site by our hosts. The area where the boats launch from has a number of docks,... More
