My daughter, son-in-law and myself walked to Beaver Lake today. This is my fourth trip in 15 years. It has extremely rocky stretches that resemble washed out rock beds rather than a trail. Wasn't like this years ago. I wouldn't recommend it for the very young, the very old or those with breathing issues. Very uneven surfaces. Instead of walking... More

Very easy and scenic trail to follow. Nice stream, flowers and beautiful scenery. Quite a few people on the trail, but all polite and friendly. We are moderate as far as hiking goes and had no trouble at all on the trail. The weather was perfect but even with sunshine there are plenty of shaded areas. Bring water, very important... More

Overall it was a nice trail, good workout for me (I am not in great shape) and the view was nice. I personally like my hikes to be a little more isolated (this one was near or on the ski slopes of Beaver Creek).

This is a great destination, especially if you are in the Avon / Beaver Creek area, as it could not be more convenient. We saw families with young children, young adults, a group of adult women, and seniors. Everyone made it, although at different paces! Look at the summer trail map, and consult with the great folks at the Beaver... More

This trail is absolutely beautiful winding next to bubbling stream with many shaded areas. Saw plenty of Marmots, squirrels, and even a couple of deer. Take lunch and water to eat at the lake. If you want to have a more difficult hike keep going past Beaver Lake to reach Turquoise Lake (15 miles from village). Bring bug spray, sunscreen,... More

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.

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
