Sept. 1, 2007 Trails were marked well enough though somewhat narrow especially along ridge top of Lakeshore Trail. Beachfront portion of route wssn't quite as easy as we expected, hot temps and uneven tide edge sand slowed us a little. We followed the eastern shoreline of Beaver Lake for about three quarters mile and enjoyed a nice breeze. There was some neat plant life along with several different animal tracks found on the lakeshore.
Our group (three of us) really liked the Beaver Creek campsite. Especially the beach area and the creek mouth at Lake Superior. We felt it was way less used and more seculed than the popular Chaple Beach area.
We went on to Trappers Lake for a night and enjoyed the peace and quietness of this place. The lakeshore is heavy tree growth with lots of jagged down trees but you can eventually find a clear enough safe spot to access water, etc.
