“A lightly trafficked trail in Occoneechee State Park”— Maddy Hatter
The sign states that Beaver Pond trail is 5.35 miles. The trail starts by a locked gate as a wide track that resembles more of a horse trail rather than a running trail. The trail is fairly straightforward to follow. Follow the green blazes for about a mile or so until reaching a signpost that indicates the start of the actual loop. The route depicted reflects starting the loop by taking the trail on the left rather than continuing straight on.
The trail at this point is a grassy singletrack with quite a lot of blowdown. It is overgrown, and there are several parts where one has to detour around a fallen tree and it undulates through the inlet with only a hint of a view of the lake through the trees.
Eventually the loop makes a sharp turn to start the last part of the loop. There is a wooden bench at this point where one can pause before closing the loop and retracing steps back to the Beaver Pond trailhead.
