Family Friendly An easy and shady trail suitable for most ages/abilities.

Description

From the trailhead, look for the well-signed route. Cross over the bridge and venture into the woods for some scenic treasures along the gently rushing river. Even on warm days, this shady trail stays cool, and is pleasant year-round.

Flora & Fauna

Seasonal flora and fauna throughout the changing of the seasons. Many photo opportunities.

We went to Beaver Flats, enjoyed the river, came back and crossed the bridge and completed the loop back to the Staircase Trailhead. 3.1mi
