We rode the ski lift to the top of the mountain late in the afternoon and hiked downthe Royal Elk trail, met up with the Beaver Lake trail and went up to the lake then hiked down to the village. It was about 5 1/2 miles total for us. We didn't find the trail strenuous but it is all downhill... More

Took the chair lift to the top and hiked Royal Elk Trail. The hike was difficult at times. Beaver Lake was just how the pictures show, beautiful. Water was very cold. We took Beaver Lake Trail on the was back, less scenic and easier. Round trip was about 3-4 Hours.

This hike is very popular because it begins in Beaver Creek, a well-known ski area. Our experience was that it was more strenuous than we were led to believe, which was OK except that we didn't expect it to be almost entirely vertical. It would have been worth it if the final destination had been more pleasant. Beaver Lake, while... More

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
