Description

The Boomscooter Trail is a 1.1 mile trail that leads up from a beaver pond next to the Banks Vernonia State Trail. It winds around to the Hilltop Day-use Area at L.L. "Stub" Stewart State Park. This is the northernmost of the trail connections with the Banks Vernonia State Trail, which leaves the state park 0.1 miles north of here.

A "boomscooter" is a small boat used to push floating logs at a booming ground, a floating log storage site.
