With the recently paved access road, a long riverside trail like this will become much more popular. The Pratt River Trail
begins from the Middle Fork Trailhead. After crossing the famous wood bridge over the Middle Fork River, turn right for the Pratt River Trail
(or left for the Middle Fork Trail #1003
) The trail is generally smooth and flat as it follows first the Middle Fork and then the Pratt River. The trail gains elevation steeply at mile 10 as you finish your final push up to Pratt Lake.
