Beaver Meadow is located in St. Hubert's in the Town of Keene near Lake Placid in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondacks. Access is via property which is owned by the Ausable Club. The state has acquired an easment to guarantee access to the trails by the public. However many restrictions apply, and hikers should be aware that they are traversing private property and respect it as such.
The hike to Beaver Meadow is approximately 6 miles round-trip and passes beautiful Beaver Meadow Falls on the way. Just follow the West River Trail along the banks of the Ausable River. This trip can be extended greatly by adding more short side-trips. Spectacular in the fall season.
