03-20-2010 (Advgirl) – This was our first visit to Beaver Lake Nature Center.  Initial observations were that this is a great place for “family” hikes.  There are a lot of small trails and educational activities to keep all ages of the family engaged.  The trails were very well maintained.  On this visit we completed the Lake Loop and Lakeview trails.  There was a little water on the Lake Loop trail but easily passable without getting wet.  However, I could see where this trail could be even further underwater with very wet conditions.  Total hiking distance around 4 miles from car to car.

03-11-2010 (Solo) – Return solo visit to see the maple sugar demonstration which was located on the Woodland Trail.  Afterward, I also hit up the Hemlock Hollow and Bog trails. All were short and well maintained.
