We hiked to beaver lake from Bachelor Gulch over the village to village connect trail. This a long hike, you can shorten it up by busing over to Beaver Creek and then up the Beaver lake trail. The village connect trail is beautiful once you get off the ski trails and into the woods. It is moderate up down and... More

This 3 mile trail is done on sunny, rocky road for 2 miles. Two pictures I took of this trail hang in my living room (poster size) because this trail was so picturesque. Seems the folks at Beaver Creek could have established a trail around the construction and road.

Delayed gratification for nature lovers. The start of the hike isn't gonna win any awards as it highlights the maintenance operations for the resort. Once you get past that however it opens up beautifully. Fairly rocky terrain, esp for one signif stretch, and it you're a flatlander it will overhaul your heart rate temporarily ! Once you reach Beaver Lake... More

Tons of hiking trails around the Village. Ranging from easy to difficult. Picture perfect. Late September, with the leaves turning colors, was the perfect time to go.

the wildflowers alone are worth this hike. When you get to the lake it is so beautiful that you will want to jump in and cool off! Great place to bring a picnic lunch and relax after your hike.

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.
