This should take you about 3 hours, depending on what you stop to look at and your pace. You can hike through a beautiful gorge, next to a creek and spend hours just wondering around.

This beautiful, green hike takes you along Beaver Creek, as it winds through a lush gorge within the bluffs. Park at the entrance to Beaver Creek Valley State Park, where the park ranger can direct you to the trailhead. Here is a helpful map of the park.

Beautiful anytime of the year! The creek and trail follow each other through the park. Usually quiet with the occasional fly fisher trying their luck.
