My kids (8 and 16 years old) and I enjoyed a nice, easy, relaxing hike to Beaver Lake today. This short n sweet hike offered a handful of opportunities to walk down the Sauk River and enjoy a nice cool down on a hot day. Beware of the stinging nettles on the trails edge reaching toward shins. Also the bridge at Beaver Lake is broken and temporary closed. ** There’s a Bald faced hornet nest somewhere under the bridge. We saw a few bees and my youngest was stung twice. Still a fantastic, easy hike with beautiful scenery.

Nice well maintained walk until the big broken bridge. We couldn’t make it over with a baby so couldn’t get to the lake

Great easy hike along the Sauk River. Great views on the drive in and even from the main parking area. There are a lot of new trees that have fallen and make the trail a bit challenging in some spots.

Not our intended trail for the day, but due to the road being closed this is why we ended up. only saw one other person and enjoyed a nice peaceful walk along the river nothing really exciting at all but we were outside and it was a nice day that's all there is to it! :)

Good hike, dog friendly and to sit by the river was beautiful with the views here. Not a lot of bugs either.

Chalk this up to a leisure 4 mile walk/ trail along the river. Awesome views of the mountain. Muddy in most spots. Dog friendly. Plenty of parking at trailhead along with restroom facilities.

Meh. The river along the trail was beautiful, but the muddy pond was hardly a destination!

We were the only ones on the trail that day. Follows the river for quite awhile. Bueatiful and wildflowers just starting to bloom. Dogs had a great time too.

Two weeks ago. Still muddy in places. Two washouts in the description. Not too bad to get around.

The drive to the trail was great with beautiful mountain peaks all around. The trail had a few peek-a-boo views of the surroundings but for the most part seemed to just be a walk in the woods. The ponds were so uneventful this time of year that we discounted them and kept going to the trail washout that is now the trail's new end. I gave this trail more than one star because of the mountain views and the beautiful tree covered trail.
