Nice walk, early morning.
Hiked this on 3/24/14 with part of our scout troop. The trail is in good condition and mainly dry. There are some stream crossings and low spots which are quite muddy.
Weather was nice so it was a good hike.
It was located next to the Beech Fork beach. You don't have to pay for parking if you let the park volunteers know you are going hiking. There are three trails that start at this trail head. We followed the Beaver Pond Trail. There is no longer a beaver dam but it is still a pretty hike. I imagine it would be beautiful in spring with the wildflowers or the fall with the fall foliage. If you wanted to hike the trail during the winter, you would have to park at the top of the hill and walk down as the gate will be closed since the beach is closed during the winter. The trail follows the creek to where the beaver dam used to be located. There were several clearings and evidence of wildlife. Our three boys loved it and we plan on going back to follow the other trails.
