Upper and Lower Thirsty Beaver are some of the best trails in Cumberland and definite 'Must do' trails when you come to town. Meandering through awesome forests with the opportunity for some high speed flow. We have routed you down Missing Link and Mama Bear to round the ride out.

      Low part rideable but 2" snow snow on very top, above branching point to Sphagnum and Bear Buns. Small tree down on bucket access, below bridge. Hand saw or two people could probably remove it.
