This trail is named for the beavers that inhabit the lake, but the large sign at the beginning of the trail warns more ominously of alligators in the area. They generally won't attack unless you get too close to them.
The trail itself is a sandy, but generally hard-packed base, with occasional roots.
The trail starts with a short boardwalk and then roughly follows the shore of the lake. There are a couple of observation decks along the trail, with the largest one at the far end of the loop. From here, you can expect to see many bird species that inhabit the park.
After you reach the observation deck at the far end of the loop, it turns south, passing through a mixed pine/hardwood forest. Here you might expect to see deer, foxes, raccoons, turkeys, and, of course, squirrels.
You can follow Beaver Trail around to make a loop or continue onto Lime Sink Trail
to extend the overall distance.
