Make sure to bring plenty of water or a water filter to keep yourself and your four-legged friend hydrated along the trail. Enjoy all that nature has to offer along the Little Beaver Creek Trail.

Shortly after you depart from the trailhead, you will meet a junction, veer right here. Shortly after turning, you will confront another intersection.
