Hiking and Birding at Beaverdam Park -- CANCELED

Hiking and Birding
Beaverdam Park in Gloucester

Saturday December 3, 2022
9:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

PSC Hikers at BeaverdamWe'll meet in the parking lot at the main entrance to Beaverdam Park at the end of Roaring Springs Road for a day hike along the reservoir. Winter waterfowl are often in residence at this time of year and we'll have a few opportunities to look for them, so bring your binoculars and/or camera.

The full route is a six-mile out-and-back around the east arm of the reservoir with a lunch stop at the primitive campground about three miles in, but the Morgan Bridge at the east end of the reservoir is a good half-way marker for a shorter (three mile) hike. There are many other turn-around spots as well for even shorter routes, so you can do as much or as little as you want.

If you plan to do the full hike, pack a lunch and some trail snacks along with a water bottle. Portions of the trail will likely be muddy, so choose your footwear accordingly. Allow four to five hours for the full six-mile hike at a comfortable pace, including a leisurely lunch break and a few birding stops.

Plan to arrive at 9:15 so we will all be present and ready to hit the trail at 9:30.
