Beautiful hike

The nature trail covers a variety of terrain, with beautiful views of the surrounding lakes. Plan about an hour for the 3K. The placards are very informative, especially for kids

Prelude Lake is 31km from the city of Yellowknife. The campground is really nice. The view of the aurora is great from the granite formation in loop C site 5 of the campground.

A Hiking Trail not to be missed. Unusual rock formations, cool terrain, and some great views. Its well worth the drive out from Yellowknife to hike the trail, only takes just over an hour to hike the trail.

Excellent views from Trail. We explored the shoreline. Need to pay about $5.25 per car for admission to this Territorial Park. Able to also rent boats at this location if interested.

Only thirty kms from Yellowknife thus campground and recreational area is a wonderful place to immerse oneself into the exquisite scenery outside the city. It is not "wild", and offers boardwalks, easy trails, stunning views of teh gorgeous lakes, and a sense of "freedom" that seems to be the hallmark of this amazing territory.

We hiked the Prelude lake trail - so amazing - wonderful views just get better and better as you go (we went clock wise)..The rock there is the most amazing red/pink and green and and...wonderful distant landscape views over the forest and lakes - an artist or photographer would love it!

This is a camping grounds that is beautiful, and has something for everyone. Great facilities and a nice place for camping as family/couples, or RVing as retired folks. Love the lake and views from the hillside campsites.

I guess this lake will look gorgeous in summer when the ice melts:) We were here (actually drove on the lake) in February and it's a great place to see aurora at night, if you are driving!!

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!
