Trail Information

Highlights

This is an easy trail for drivers of all kinds who’d like a nice drive in the woods. Off of Hall Valley Road, Beaver Creek offers a little challenge for stock vehicles and some amazing views of the forest throughout including Beaver Creek and its natural dams, and connects to the network of trails in the Jefferson Lake area.

If you would like to run Webster Pass (FS 285.181) and/or Red Cone (FS 565), then this is a an alternaitve place to camp though can be very busy with small vehicle traffic.

Great spots for camping from waypoint 2 onward. The rating is a bit low, a lot of wash out has happened from waypoint 1 to 2 making it very difficult for a low clearance vehicle.

While it’s not difficult, you should know it’s very narrow for most of it steeper and rock year than I expected for a easy trail.

As of mid-day Sunday 21May2023, the gate from the Grant side/CR60 is closed. The gate to the area from CR124 is also closed. We were able to access the area via an open gate on the Jefferson side that took us to Deadman/Wahl/a section of Guernsey. The gate from 285 to Guernsey was also closed. Spots of snow on Wahl. The creek crossing at Waypoint 3 to Lininger cutoff looked the same as it does every time we've been there, likely about hub-deep, but we didn't cross as we were unsure why the Grant side gate to Beaver Creek was still closed. It was a strange being able to get to the opposite side of closed gates via an open gate on a different forest service's jurisdiction/area. Hopefully the FS gets the gate(s) open for the holiday weekend.
