Beaver Lake Trail is a pretty serious up hill hike to the lake. An easier option (although maybe little longer) is to take Centential lift up to the Royal Elk trial and hike over to Beaver Lake. We had the whole trail to ourself and...More

Grate hike during the week in the summer and if you bring your fishing pole can easily snag some rainbow trout. Catch and release please. Does get a bit crowded on the week ends.

Trails on the mountains adjacent to Beaver Creek are extremely well-marked and well-indicated on available trail maps. It's a fun, exhilarating experience and opportunity to get some clean air, great exercise, and good scenery. You'll see very few people on the trail, although mountain bikers...More

Nice trail with a good amount of steep climbing For last third of trail. Lake is beautiful and trail wide and easy for the first half then narrows and is rocky and steeper.

I was a little disappointed on this trail as trail had lots of hose droppings so I won't do it again. If this was a trail without horse access, then it would have been wonderful.'

It's about a 4-5 hour hike from base to Beaver Lake. I am not a hiker, but I am in good physical shape and there were times we were ready to turn around. The gorgeous views and fun discoveries along the way made it worth...More

The hike was nice, but be warned. The trail is shared with horses so there was a good amount of horse poop along the way. That's probably the most annoying part. I had to constantly look down because we were dodging the droppings. The lake...More

Great trail. Make sure you hike all the way to Beaver Lake it’s worth the hike. Also, hiking along the Beaver Creek river is spectacular!

I’d rate this hike as moderate but only after having done more strenuous hikes I. The area. It was 3.21 miles to the top starting on the 5 senses trail. It took us about 1.5 hours. The trail was pretty private. We hardly saw anyone....More

Sorry I didn't notice your question sooner, but the Vail area does have wildflowers. Hopefully you enjoyed them on your travels.

We did it in November, so it's definitely doable in the winter, but make sure you have the right boots to do it.
