Beaver Slough Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This easy self-guided nature trail wanders along placid Beaver Slough. Hikers transcend into wilderness a hop, skip, and jump away from family-friendly North Pole and the premier attractions at the Santa Claus House. The easy mile-long trail hosts interpretive signs, an old homestead cabin rendition, and a flower-enriched peace garden. As you wander along the lush slough, keep your eyes peeled for beavers!
This impressive little nature trail follows Beaver Slough
through humbling old-growth spruce forest rich with wildflowers in downtown North Pole. The trail leads east of the parking area, but before heading out, stop by the rendition of a 1944 wilderness homestead located across the street from the trailhead. A placard at the cabin describes the history of the first legal plots in the area, the birth of the city, and the Christmas-inspired city name (hint: it does involve toys!)."
