The trail lies south of Elkwater Lak4e and west of Ferguson Hill Road. This moderately easy 5.7 out-and-back trail provides numerous loop options. The trail has a good surface for much of its length, but there are a few wet sections near the lower trailhead. It is done best in an uphill direction, beginning in the Beaver Creek Campground. The forest cover is a mixture of aspen and old-growth spruce. The spruce trees are covered in a stringlike lichen known as old man's beard. The trail also takes you past some beaver ponds providing a great opportunity to see this industrious animal, along with other wetland residents.
