In this video I hike up the Prairie View Trail, sometimes referred to as the Barrier Lake Fire Lookout, in Kananaskis. We start the hike at the Barrier Dam Day Use Area, and takes us up Yates Mountain in the Bow Valley Provincial Park. The route is over 6 km one way, and over 400 m of elevation gain. The views from the top are excellent, with Calgary visible in the distance. Barrier Lake below looked amazing as well, with the water looking a turquoise colour.
