We enjoyed the hike. We expected a casual walk in the woods, but this was a respectable hike. And I might add, somewhat steep in spots. We needed to stop & catch our breath several times.

Times are variable depending on fitness level. We hiked up in 1:15 hour with a couple stops. :40 minutes max down with a moon rise viewing at the bottom of Birds of Prey.

The trail to Beaver Lake is a classic alpine trail to a classic alpine lake. The scenery is stunning, from the wildflowers at your feet, to the rushing mountain stream at your side, to the snow-covered peaks towering over your head. The trail is well-maintained. It's not quite perfect, though. The larger part of the trail is in the Beaver... More

Amazingly beautiful! This trail to the Beaver Creek Lake was stunning! The hike took around 2 and 1/2 hours to the lake and 1 and 1/2 hours return.

This is a perfect hike for a day trip. It's a steading uphill climb but not to difficult, just have plenty of water. Once you get to the lake it is well worth the trip. Great place to have lunch or do a little fishing. The best part is having a cold beer at The Chop House when you get... More

Good track, well maintained. Walked this out of season, so very quiet. Great views around the lake and saw 2 bears on the way back

It was a longer walk with a steady incline, and became a bit of a challenge at the end for the seniors, but it was well worth it. The lake was beautiful, and it was nice to see deer along the way. I would suggest early morning. Horses from the stables come up along the path, which can be slightly... More

We hike this every year, easy access from the village. A good half day hike with great views along the way. Grab a lunch and bring your fishing pole during the summer!
