Beaver Lake Trail is an easy 3 mile hike designed to view the work of beavers. The trail begins 50 yards from the Sauk river Bridge and ends at Lyle Creek. The entire trail is along an old railroad grade. At 1.5 miles hikers can cross the bridge between ponds. Approach the ponds quietly and visitors might see Mallards, Wood Ducks, Great Blue Heron, and beavers. The trail continues on through old cedar groves. Where the trail comes back to a slough, cross the stream and go through a forested area coming out at the river for some excellent fishing.

Continuing on the trail, you leave the river and pass the site of the Sauk Ranger Station. The trail ends on the road near Lyle Creek, after climbing a couple hundred feet.

Directions: From Darrington, Take the Mt. Loop Hwy. along the west side of the Sauk River. Follow this road 10 miles going past the Sauk River crossing. Just past the bridge is the road to the trailhead. The road is 0.2 mile in length.
