Beaver Meadow Trail Description

Developed as a Safe Routes to School project, the paved section of the Beaver Meadow Trail runs eastward for 1.5 miles from the Dubois City Park along the northern bank of Sandy Lick Creek traversing under US 219 and terminating at Schaffer Road (SR 4017).  Another gravel-surfaced section of the trail exists on the southern bank of the creek. If traveling in the eastward direction from City Park on the paved section of the trail,  you will come to a trail bridge across Sandy Lick Creek about 4/10 of a mile after passing under US 219. After crossing over the trail bridge,  you will find a baseball park and a parking lot.  At this point, you can access the gravel section of this trail which only travels eastward for about 1 mile to another bridge over Sandy Lick Creek bringing one back to the paved section of the trail.   The addition of the gravel trail in conjunction with the paved section of the trail offers views of the creek from both sides and breaks up the monotony of traversing the same side of the creek

Parking and Trail Access

Access the trail from either end. You can park in the shopping center off Liberty Road or at the other end off Beaver Drive at Shaffer Road.

Beaver Meadow Trail Reviews

Don't forget the dogs! There's a nice dog park midway down on the Eastern Trail. Even without the dogs, it's a nice way to kill time while in DuBois.

I have been walking this trail since I was a young child. It's beautiful and perfect for walking, biking, or skating. It's right along a little river and its a very peaceful place!

Since the map on this site was submitted, there have been numerous changes including a tunnel under Liberty Boulevard, so the trail now easily links to the park, "ampitheatre-ette", sports fields, swimming pool, etc. Also, a dirt trail is now on the other side of the water (which I prefer for running on). Two new bridges connect these 2 trails. Also more benches, etc. The asphalt-paved trail could be wider, but there is plenty of grass on either side if you need to get off the pavement to allow a family with 6 bikes to go by...


I have been on this trail many times and at all different times of the day. I use the trail for walking and inline skating. The trail has a relaxing feel eventhough its in town.

This is a very nice walk from downtown to the Mall. Nicely maintained and very accessible whether walking, biking or wheelchair bound.
