A good hiking trail

Another well marked hiking trail with lots of informative plaqes. It is an easy hike and can be done in about an hour. Good places to stop and rest and good views. Wear bug spray

Had to do some work in Yellowknife but a new friend offered to take me out to his cabin for a fish-fry. I was so happy I did, besides their supreme hospitality the area is amazing! Beautiful views and lots of clean water to see!

The trail was well marked. A geologist gave a free guided tour explaining the rock formation of the Canadian Shield.

I have visited Prelude Lake a number of times. Usually it has been with friends to rent a boat, cruise around and do some fishing. Each time it has been a wonderful way to spend a day. I particularly enjoyed the fishing. We did sport fishing for pike. There were lots of fish, which always made for a great day.... More

Nice hiking trails around here. The water is cool, but makes for a refreshing swim on a warm day. Well worth the visit.

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.
