The two Scarpes of the Beaver Valley

Did you know that there are actually two different ‘Escarpment’ cliffs, depending on where you are in the Beaver valley? The one is obvious on Grey Rd 13, with Old Baldy and Eugenia Falls. The second one travels along Pioneer drive and passes the Beaver Valley Ski Club. I hiked 21 kms here, and I can tell you it is FANTASTIC and UNBELIEVABLY beautiful!! It is the remains of an ancient coral reef of the Michigan Basin when it was a tropical sea, this layer jumps out especially at high cliffs like these. It is exhausting though, as it up and down the Scarpe’s highest points, but so worth it. Get out there and experience this, even if it’s in a car. You won’t be disappointed!!
