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.

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.
