Trail shared by Tilman Giese

A supreme swimming spot for the brave in front of a great waterfall.

Description

This track is to the left immediately after you cross the bridge on Milford Track. It gently leads up to Prairie Lake and the waterfall that supplies it. This is a great swimming hole for those who don't mind the cold water.
