Summary:
Beachwood is primarily a XC ski trail that offers fast and fun summer riding. Overall the trails are very well maintained. There's no single track unless you start making your own. However there are a lot of hills, sharp turns and plenty of routes to have fun on. Great place to ride with friends.

Lots of parking (either at the trailhead or the High School)

Recommended Route:
Junkyard to Train Ride to HIll Loop

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Eagle River nature center (Summer)

Summary:
This was a fun trail to ride. I will be riding this trail often. For first timers just pay attention to the signs. There is about 4 different trails and if you're not paying attention you could get on the wrong trail.

Recommended Route:
The Red Diamond 10k

Summary:
In summary...I felt like I was on a rollercoaster. Up and down...I loved it. The momentum from the downhill carries you up part of the next uphill.

Recommended Route:
take the trail to the most to the left after the tunnels.You have 3-4 "routes" to choose from. But there are signs everywhere to tell you where you are.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fort Rich back area from Eagle River...even though they are starting to develop it more and more.

Reviewed by: Patrick , from Eagle River AK USA

Summary:
Some of the hardest XC ski trails in the state lots of hills to keep up the speed though, grueling climbs and few areas of rest, a view of Denali from the top of the "Yo Yos". Flat But Hard Sigle Track in north Pasture, Possiblities for some NS like ramps wich might be built by a few locals (like Me :)) Christlies Loop Has an Insane but short down hill known as free fall and theres a few technicle trails off the main ones worth checking out (i hadn't found them till this fall). I skied this 90% of the days with snow this winter it is sweet, Oh don't Bike Before June first, or when its totally dry Ja the Ski Coach will Get Pissed along with the People who maintain it Enjoy
