We planned on going up Beverly and down Bean, but could not find a place to cross roaring Bean Creek, so in our mid-60s decided discretion was in order and went up and down Bean.  Looks pretty good up there.  

We were able to park about 0.6 miles from the trailhead - unless you have a big truck it will be that way for at least another week or so.  Skied up the turnpike and along the creek, about 3/4 mile of hiking, then skinned up all the way from there.  Was a fun, mostly sunny day.

Thanks! Good to hear. I too have been beaten by that creek. It will kill somebody too eager some day.
