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!

I'm in ok shape, but coming direct from sea level the day before this hike left me gasping for breath. Great scenery.

Beaver Lake is a beautiful lake and makes the hike up to it worth doing. As of right now, part of the beginning of the hike goes by construction on the mountain. The trail has a detour out of the woods and onto a gravel vehicle road, but this doesn't last forever and once back into the woods the trail... More

It's a climb for beginners, but the goal is a beautiful lake a few thousand feet up. Even coming down can be challenging with the narrow paths and rocks.

I agree with some of the other reviews - the entire Beaver Lake Trail is not perfect - there is a maintenance area that is an eye sore. Avoid this section entirely by taking Village to Village loop around this section. The other issue is that this is also a horse trail. Be prepared for some serious horse manure that... More
