Beaver Lake Nature Center Policies

Beaver Lake Nature Center’s trails are hiking trails designed for nature study and observation. Though most of the trails are chipped for a quiet experience while hiking, the trails may still have roots, rocks, and uneven terrain.  There are 4 trails with sections of boardwalk.  During certain times trails may be wet or slippery so appropriate footwear is important.

In the winter, when the snow is deep enough for skiing, 4 trails are designated for skiing only, and 4 for hiking.  Two temporary trails are flagged through the woods for snowshoeing.

Alcohol, amplified music, pets, biking, fishing, collecting and fires (including bbq, gas and electric grills) are NOT permitted on park grounds (this list is not all inclusive).

Deer jumping

Please be mindful of others and of wildlife. Always yield to the nature observer.

***Please walk, never run, by another visitor.***

When visiting the Nature Center, entrance is through the main gate on East Mud Lake Road and parking is permitted only in Nature Center’s parking lots (not on surrounding roads).
