Buck Prairie II

Located just 2.5 miles past Buck Prairie, Buck Prairie II offers snowshoers several miles of dog friendly trekking. Buck Prairie II was constructed to help with the over crowding at Buck Prairie and ease tensions between skiers and dog owners. It consists of flatter terrain that is easier to navigate. A Sno-Park permit is required to park here.


Buck Prairie II has very moderate terrain with minor elevation changes. The Buck Prairie trail system runs through classic southern Oregon forest. With open glades and meadows along the way, there are some great views.

Food & Water

For water, 2L-3L per person for a day trip is recommended. As for food, several small snacks throughout the day are recommended. Big meals are fun but bog you down. Small snacks allow for a continual flow of energy to your body. For your snacks, try to balance sugars, fats, proteins, and carbs so your body is continually fueled. This helps reduce crashes in energy during the day.
