The Beaver Trail at Michaux State Forest in Pennsylvania is a 2.5 mile out-and-back hike along the Long Pine Run Reservoir in central Michaux with amazing views of the reservoir and the surrounding hills. To the north of the reservoir, you'll find Rocky Knob towering above - with the Rocky Knob Trail ascending alongside it.

No biking, horses, or camping along this trail.

The trail has 3 different trailheads, depending on where you want to park. The GPS data provided does not include all trailhead connections, so keep this in mind when navigating to the trail.

Note: we did not complete the entire hike to Birch Run rd due to sunset approaching, but it's not much further than 0.25 - 0.3 miles from where the GPS data ends to get to the road.

Parking: Your best bet for parking is at the coordinates provided (under Get Directions), along Birch Run Rd on the southern end of the reservoir. You can also park at the intersection of Birch Run Rd and Milesburns Rd and extend the hike further to about 3 miles out-and-back. The trailhead, in the GPS data, starts along Birch Run Rd to the north of the reservoir; however, there is no viable parking lot here. This trailhead is useful if you're hiking down from the Rocky Knob Trail.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
