Horse Riding

Although parking is limited at the marked Beaver Reservoir Trailhead, there is ample room for parking and turning around with a horse trailer south of County Road 96 on the east side of Beaver Reservoir. This trailhead provides access to the Sourdough Trail, and Coney Creek Road (the road is a nice ride early in the season, when the gate is still closed.)
