Praire View to Mt Yates Firelookout & Jewell Pass Loop

Firelook out to right. Cliff is the paraire Lookout

June 6th 2023

This well known trail from Barrier Lake goes up the praire View Lookout. Take a right at the top and go up to the Fire Lookout. A bit of a tuffer slog but worth the effort. Return down to the Lower lookout and then head down to Jewell Pass. The first 100m may look abit daugnting but then it becomes a nice treed trail. Keep left at all turns and return to Barrier Lake. Passing by waterfalls on Jewell Pass. Then walk back along the shore. Take a short cut if water level low.
