Trail Overview

Beaver Creek begins with a wide-open entrance that quickly leads towards Bell Canyon before following Beaver Creek. The out-and-back trail begins on a primarily dirt surface with some moderate to heavy rutting and slightly off-camber sections before the mixed rocky surface within the creek. Further along the trail, several short, steep grades wind in and out of the soft sand creekbed. On the higher ground sections, there are several areas with larger rocks up to 12 inches in size, many of which are loose and tend to shift while being driven over. Due to the nature of the trail, drivers should be aware of the weather and check for deeper water crossings before traversing too far, as many of the water crossings can be over 12 inches in depth. The narrow single-vehicle-wide trail does not offer many areas to turn around. The trail dead-ends at a locked private property boundary. There is no cell service in the area for several miles and there are no additional motorized spurs.
