Enjoyed the trail following the river, but would consider this moderate due to several steep sections.

Awesome trail! Within about a quarter mile we jumped up two Doe that were bedded down. Later on we heard two beautiful Bald Eagles that we’re roosted in a tall pine tree! Such a great experience! It stormed last night so it was night and quiet and no one was on the trail with us! Definitely doing this trail again!

Nice high trail along ridge of hills along the lake. Parking lot right before dam overlook. This trail was less buggy than our morning hike and had a lot of uphill sections from the start. Like another hiker posted, we'd mark it moderate rather than easy due to the stamina needed. Older hikers with bad knees would want a staff for leverage. Some sections were quite grassy and we ended up w a lot of chiggers on us and our dog. My husband picked up some ticks as well despite OFF spray. The trail goes on quite a bit farther than the ALLTrails map so when you reach the long descent ,after the flat wooded clearing, turn around unless you want more exercise (keep in mind you'll need to climb back up on the return)

Also note that Beavers Lodge trail may be two sections. We did the trail that starts west of the parking lot next to spillway. However we noticed there is a one way trail on official park maps with same name that follows the river south below the spillway and ends at start of Skyline Trail. A map indicates there is trailhead parking at both ends of the southern Beavers Lodge.

For me this was a good trail but I do not think it's difficulty should be called easy due to the amount of climbing terrain and the steepness of the terrain especially for a first time hiker.
