This is the “boardwalk” crossing the Beaverpond in the CVNP. ( Park at the Ira Road trailhead, follow the path north about 1/2 mile to the boardwalk).
This is truly one of my favorite areas in the CVNP. Sometimes I walk by dogs here twive a day when I’m around. You truly never know what you’ll see here. All of these images we ahow within the past 2 weeks or so. In addition to the abundant bird populationthere are many beavers that actually bulit the pond the this boardwalk crosses. If you get there at daybreak, you can usually see them feeding, and working on the banks of the pond as well as their homes. This pond was created by the beavers and is florishing. Alond with the beavers, water snakes, frogs, geese, deer, uscrats & mink, turtles and more are often visiable. The best times to be here are daybreak + 2-3 hours.
