No Beavers at Beaver Lake

No Beavers at Beaver Lake
Beaver Creek Ski Resort, Colorado

I’ve been living in Beaver Creek for almost two years now and keep hearing about the Beaver Lake hike. When guests ask me for a hike in the summer, I’ve even been referring them up there. But for some reason or another, I had never bothered to venture up there myself. Until a quick little stroll after work last week. Meh…

From USDA FS: “The Beaver Lake Trail begins at the base of the Beaver Creek Ski Area and continues past Beaver Lake at 3.3 miles, ending at Turquoise Lakes: This trail follows Beaver Creek as you hike through aspens and thimbleberry on an old wagon trail then onto singletrack up through coniferous forest to the Holy Cross Wilderness boundary at mile 3. From here you are only 0.3 miles from Beaver Lake. For most, this is the final destination, but the trail does continue an additional 4 miles to Lower and Upper Turquoise Lakes located at the foot of Grouse Mountain.”
