Prairie Woods has nearly seven miles of trails.Through woods and prairies, near ponds and wetlands, over flat terrain and glacial ridges, the trail network covers much of PWELC's 500 acres. Trails are open for walking and hiking during daylight hours year-round.

We look forward to seeing you on the cross country ski trails!
