Description

Prairie Loop is the northernmost trail of the Anne Springs Close Greenway system. It starts just north of the northern intersection of the east and west sections of the School Loop. The beginning is mostly fire roads and wide singletrack, making for easy running, even when the park is crowded with visitors.

The trail makes a significant change in character once it meets up with Steele Creek. You won't have to cross the waters, and this section is very scenic and has a few narrow suspension bridges to keep things exciting. Take your time in this portion! The trail itself transitions to a much narrower track, which makes for an exciting experience that feels much more like true wilderness. If you're going to run into a bottleneck, it would occur in this portion. Luckily, the relaxing sound of the creek and the scenic surroundings make it easy to slow down.
