Beaverdam Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route begins on Beaverdam Park’s nature trail, then joins its hiking path to trace the southeastern arm of Beaverdam Reservoir, bisecting numerous stream-fed marshes along the way. A return leg across forested hills on the park’s multiuse trail completes the loop.

Were it solely the work of tree-felling semiaquatic mammals, Beaverdam Reservoir would be quite a feat. But in fact the 635-acre lake is the product of a human-made dam. Before its 1990 inundation, the submerged area was a tangle of creeks and wooded beaver ponds known as Beaverdam Swamp."

This was one difficult trail. But it was a lot of fun and their wasn't a single other person out there, just you and nature.
