Upper Beaver Meadow Road was closed, so we parked off the mail road and walked. Dogs are allowed on the road (we saw at least three people with dogs on leashes), but not on the actual trail.

This is a good nature walk for groups and families. It is a horse trail, so beware. Often see animals in the Fall weeks. Not as pretty as other hikes.
