Beaver Lake Trail 629


This easy hike offers views of beavers at work and a chance to experience the serenity of the river and forest. The entire trail follows an old railroad grade–watch for the last of the decaying trestles and exposed rails along the way. The trail ends at the river where itl was washed out during high waters in 2006. At this point, enjoy a delightful view of Mt. Pugh, Sloan Peak and Mt. Forgotten.
