This hike will cover a section of the Appalachian Trail that goes along the shore of Little Dam Lake in Sterling Forest. This wetland has been a home for beavers (known to the Algonquians as The Maker of Dreams) for hundreds of years. Despite trapping and predators, the beaver has survived. We will explore their lodges, a dam, and hear some beaver tales (no pun intended) along the way. See “What to Bring” on the left. We will email parents in advance of the hike if there are any changes to this list.
