    Directions to Trailhead
    Bellevue Prairie

    The Bellevue Prairie Trail is shaped like a reverse lollipop route that gives hikers the option to take a small detour on the return—otherwise, it’s an out-and-back trail. The trail is simple and flat, leading to an incredibly wide-open meadow that sees excellent wildflower blooms in July and August. This trail is suitable for all abilities.
