Beaver Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Beaver Lake is a small gem tucked between forested hills just inside the Holy Cross Wilderness. The hike starts near the base of the Centennial Lift at the Beaver Creek Ski Area, follows a nature trail with interpretive signs, then joins the Beaver Lake Trail. It wanders along Beaver Creek, passing various ski area buildings and under chairlifts, providing a summer view of the ski area.
Colorful wildflowers and bushes line the trail. While steep in places, the trail has some mellow spots that provide a place to catch your breath. Little sh swim in Beaver Lake, a great place to relax. An option to go or return a different way, including a chairlift ride, is also given."
