The beaver dam downstream is not far off the trail at all. I had a big snow drift to go through which made it more difficult. On my return I crossed on the much bigger beaver dam upstream, again not verY far from the trail, which was considerably easier. Iím not sure what those dams will look like at the moment because of the flooding going on, but if you can, take the larger upstream crossing. You may even be able to cross where the old bridge was because the flooding may have wiped away the lower dam. Rock Creek could also be a challenge during high water.
I hope that you and Marty have a good time.
