Beaver Creek Trail is located in the northwestern area of the park following a route through a hardwood forest.

This trail runs between a small parking area off of Squire Gratz Road and Mooring Area # 1 in the northwestern corner of the park. The trail meanders through low lying wooded terrain and can be muddy in wet weather. Sections of the trail can also be rocky. Many habitats, including wetlands, can be seen in this undeveloped section of the park.

Directions: From Harrisburg, PA, Take Interstate 83 to the Lewisberry Exit 15. Travel southwest on SR 177 approximately 7 - 8 miles to the state park. Continue straight on SR 177 and shortly, you will see a boat launch area on your right. You may access the trail there or go up the road a short distance, turn right on Old York Road then right again on Squire Gratz Road. You will find trailhead parking on your right just before crossing Beaver Creek.
