Beware of mountain lions! We saw fresh, big tracks today. I love this trail though. It has a lot to offer.
Close to Denver. Very challenging this time of yr. If you're going to hike the trail, I'd definitely use crampons. The new Chavez/beaver brook loop is 5.5-6 miles.
Close to Denver, I enjoy going to this trail when I need something close. It has a nice mix of elevation gain and loss as well as creek for more than half of the loop. Its especially great during summer time, because you can hike or run and work up a nice sweat then dip in May of the pools along the trail.
great trail a little snowy but nothing too challenging!
Awesome trail. Take time to soak in the views which are gorgeous.
