Perfect Day Hike

This hike was perfect with outstanding views from many locations. Not really difficult but make sure to carry enough water.

Decent hike with a good trail, lots of people the later in the day you go but very pretty. Can be tough in spots with good elevation gain. Rocky decent in places.

One of the easiest trails we took while in Beaver Creek. We passed Beaver Creek Chapel on the way, Beaver Creek, fishing ponds, Beaver Lake.

We are avid hikers of all of the Colorado trails. We always spend August and September hiking in the Beaver Creek area. This was our first time to hike this trail. It is a very nice trail, with some steep parts, but over all it is an easy hike. Once you get to the lake it is just so relaxing... More

We hiked from the resort base to the lake rather than taking the lift - it's a climb that isn't very glamorous for the first stretch, but it's wide road/trail perfect for chatting w friends. Try to get to the lake when the morning sun is just hitting it - so leave pretty early in the AM (before the lift... More

We rode the lift up the mountain and hiked to the lake from there. The hike was absolutely gorgeous and perfect for two new hikers.However, portions of the hike down were closed for construction and we found ourselves walking down what I assume is a construction route for the most part. Also, part of the hike to the lake was... More

After talking to the guide at the Beaver Creek Hiking Center we realized it was not the easy hike we had been told by others. They gave us several options to get there which really made a difference! The route our friends told us to take was closed due to a New Fire Station being built. Glad we stopped by... More

We took the guided tour offered by the Beaver Creek Hiking Center and we are very glad that we did! Our guide Nick was very knowledgeable, charming, good company and an excellent instructor. It was the first time that we had hiked with a guide and found it well worth the cost as we learnt about the area, the wildlife,... More
