Beaver Creek

Description: This is a fairly undeveloped site with many small trails (cow paths) that crisscross through it. The area immediately around the parking lot is a god example of open high desert scrub with sparse Mesquite. As you walk (hardly hiking) toward the creek bed, the vegetation changes markedly into dense Mesquite/Pine forest. Finally, as you approach the creek itself, the vegetation becomes clearly riparian with tall Sycamore trees and Cottonwoods. Note: the creek can be dry at times of the year.

Administrative Agency: Coconino National Forest

Restrictions and fees: There are no restrictions to hiking or parking. Access is free. Watch for fire warnings during the dry season.

Approximate area size: 0.2 sq. miles
