Beaver Creek Drainage is located on the north slope of the Uinta Mountain range. It borders the Burnt Fork Drainage to the east, and the Henry's Fork Drainage to the west. The Beaver Creek Basin can be accessed from Lonetree, Wyoming. The Basin is about 10 miles south of Lonetree.
Major roads accessing the drainage are the Hole in the Rock Road from Lonetree and the North Slope Road from either the Henrys Fork Drainage to the west or the Burnt Fork Drainage to the east. Trail access to the Wilderness Area is provided by the West Fork Beaver Trail from the West Fork Road, the Middle Fork Beaver Trail from the Georges Park Trailhead and the Burnt Ridge and Thompson Peak Trails from the Hoop Lake Trailhead. The Hoop Lake Trailhead also_ provides access to the Burnt Fork Drainage via the Kabell Meadow Trail. In general, trails are marked and in good condition with the exception of the Middle Fork Beaver Trail. This trail is poorly routed and is difficult for horses m areas. All trails are identified on the drainage map by Forest Service trail numbers.
