Angleworm Trail - EP 21 Hiking & Beaver Dam
I agree with joe. Been around the loop 4 times in the last couple years, never had a problem with the beaver dam. Hiking poles, or a stick are great for helping with balance
This beaver dam will hold you no problem. I would recommend hiking poles or a walking stick for balance and just walk slowly. You will not have a problem. Angleworm is a really pretty trail and a bit more challenging than 14 miles would suggest.
Planning a hiking trip to the Angleworm trail. I know part of the trail is blocked by flooding from a beaver dam (on the east side of the lake - taking the trail counter-clockwise). I understand that people often cross over the top of the beaver dam to continue the trail.
I have never done so myself, and was wondering if anyone has crossed this (or any beaver dams in general). Is it difficult? I saw this dam last year, and didn't realize that people navigated across it so I turned around. It's pretty good size, and assume it would support us? My brother and I are pretty big guys (275 & 385lbs respectively).
Any thoughts or tips?
