We have hiked the Beaver Lake Trail several times. It is a good hike - about 7 miles there and back. Be sure to pack water, a snack and layer, layer, layer! Every time we have gone, a random hail storm (yes, hail) has hit us. So, have a hat and a rain jacket. The lake is small but gorgeous and very tranquil. We have seen lots of small wildlife and birds. I hear a lot of people that have seen moose and bear as well.

the hike is hard in a lot of areas along the way. It took us 4 hours there and back. Enjoy the scenery- stunningly beautiful. The trail is along the creek/river. Its about the journey- the destination is the cherry on top. Once you reach the lake- its so peaceful and serene. Bring water and a camera. A must do!

This was a nice hike to the lake. The climb was a little harder than we expected. Make sure you bring some water for the hike.

Great walk and not too challenging, just right. It was beautiful as well, the only other recommendation is the berry picker trail in vail it was a little challenging but it was worth it for the free gondola ride down.

One of the many trails we did this summer. It was very scenic and well-marked. It gets 4/5 as it was also very busy and we had to overtake group after group as it's more of a trail for those looking for a leisurely hike.
