We took a hike on this trail today based on the various reviews on Trip Advisor. This was an extremely disappointing hike: 1. Beaver Creek is a gated winter resort not geared toward hiking or nature walking. Parking is very controlled and limited. Info for hikers are hard to find. Sign posts to trailheads non-existent. Hikers need to park at... More

This was our first hike during our trip to Colorado, and it was quite a doozy for me. By doozy, I mean I was huffing and puffing and totally regretting choosing this hike to try out the altitude and my new hiking shoes. Having said that, I am in fair physical condition, but that is subjective. I believe it took... More

Very beautiful trail. Had some very steep areas. You need to adjust to the altitude before hiking. Good exercise. I would rate it difficult.

Stopping by the Hiking Center was a good idea to do before wandering around the area if you haven't been there before. My brother and I knew we wanted to go hiking, but was having a hard time searching for a list of trail-heads and where they were located near the area. (We tend to travel without doing a lot...

We enjoyed the hike but it was crowded, with some hikers who were not courteous with their radios blaring and their inability to share the path.

We were glad we took this hike, despite the concerns of being in shape to do it. It is a 1600 ft elevation change, and probably not the hike to do, your first day at altitude. However, if you are hiker, can take your time if you are finding it a challenge, it is a lovely one to add to... More

We found out about half way thru we were not in good shape for this walk. It was still fun and we would do it again it just took a little longer than we expected the views we saw were well worth the exercise

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.
