Beaver Lake Trail
Darrington Ranger District
This work party starts at 8:30AM
Mountain Loop Hwy from Darrington. This is a relatively flat trail which parallels the Sauk Scenic River, leading to a small lake named after the beaver which previously occupied many of the small ponds in this area. This is a great week if you like to build structures: the work will be repairing a bridge and building turnpike.
This is a relatively flat trail which parallels the Sauk Scenic River, leading to a small lake named after the beaver which previously occupied many of the small ponds in this area. It is a great trail for families with young children.
From Seattle drive north on I-5 and take exit 208 (Arlington/Silvana). Drive about 32 miles east on Highway 530 (The Mountain Loop) to Darrington. At the stop sign, take a right onto the Mountain Loop Highway, travelling south along the west side of the Sauk River. At 8.8 miles (just short of the Sauk River bridge)Forest Service Road 2080 turns to the right. Do not take this turn. Continue straight ahead on the Mountain Loop Highway a few hundred feet from this turn off and just after you cross the bridge you will see the parking lot for the Beaver Creek Trail on your right. (Driving time from Seattle: approximately 2 hours.)
