I had mixed feelings about this trail. It is quite muddy and wet in some areas, but that didn’t bother me. There’s mud in nature, so that’s to be expected. The first half of this trail is wide and very easy to follow. The second half, however, is easy to mistake for a game trail. I followed it through and felt pretty proud of myself. I saw LOTS of wildlife, which was awesome! There is also a wetland conservation area in the middle with some very interesting looking flowers. I came upon two separate beds of deer, which sent a jolt through my heart, as they startled me! Haha. Fair, since I startled them too. Some areas of the trail are so narrow that it takes some ducking and dodging under brush to get through. **Also, at two separate instances, the suggested map path was not accurate. I just used the general map to navigate the last half mile of the trail, as well as some point in the middle. There are pros and cons, but ultimately I would do it again. ***CHECK YOURSELF WELL FOR TICKS!! I was covered in them when I got home. ***

My husband and I attempted Beaver Pond trail today. It was difficult to find and the locals had never heard of it. We finally located it, but the recent rains made parts of it difficult. It is pretty out there, but we just usually enjoy a better maintained trail.

Well shaded, low intensity hike. My wife and I jumped four deer during the hike. Comfortable. Dog friendly.

Good hike, trail was a little hard to follow at some points but that was because of all the rain we had.

I really enjoyed this trail. There are some creek crossing, so be prepared to get wet! I did fall off a log into a creek in my effort to avoid getting wet, but it was all good!
