Departing from Crow Creek Rd at the North Access Point, the Beaver Pond Trail climbs steeply before connecting into California Creek Trail and, a little further along, Abe's Trail. The trailhead can be found .5 miles up Crow Creek Road, just before the bridge over California Creek.
Intermediate to Advanced | 2.5 Miles | Fat Tire / All Mountain
Take this trail from the Gird-Bird Trail or from the Crow Creek entrance: You’ll enter at California Creek Trailhead and take a left at the marking onto Beaver Pond Trail. The trail then runs approximately 2.5 miles along the base of Penguin Ridge. Although the trail can be a bit overgrown, crews have improved it immensely in recent years, and it’s now more accessible, all season. Head from north to south so that you can grab a scoop at The Ice Cream Shop in the Tesoro Mall before you head back onto the bike path into Girdwood.
