Went yesterday, their is a path from others but lots of snow on the ground. The lake is completely frozen but was still super peaceful and relaxing.

on Beaver Lake Trail

Awesome Trail! Started out with no snow- ended up in a foot of snow at the lake. For a beginner hiker from Texas, I had to make quite a few stops to catch my breath, but I made it to the lake in a couple of hours. It is a STRAIGHT UP hike the whole way, but the scenery is gorgeous!!

There was a lot of icy packed snow on 2/3 of the trail. I would suggest a little extra traction for your shoes. The trail has a great pay off at the end of the trail in the form of a beautiful view over Lost Lake.

Got to the trail at 8:30 on Sunday and there was plenty of parking. People were fighting for spots when I left around 11:30. Easy hike with good payoff. Be sure to walk all the way around the lake once you get there. Microspikes are a must for the climb to the lake.

I made it about 6 km in, to an elevation of approximately 3,375 meters before I had to turn back due to deep snow (up to quads and did not have snow shoes, so basically post-holing along ridgeline). Knowing I was turning around, I went off trail and snapped some photos. Glad I did, it was awesome! There are really nice areas all about. If anything, I think this trail is underrated if not under-utilized. It is beautiful through and through with the majority of the hike through forest area (serene and picturesque). Views open up toward the top and are excellent. Steep but manageable. Saw quite a few wildlife tracks on the way up. Definitely a bit off the beaten path. I am willing to do this one again a bit earlier in the fall. As stated by another poster, trail is clear of trees and in very good condition.

very beautiful hike not so hard. there is several other lakes to hike as well.
parking was ok however it was in fall not summer. the road to the trail is not rough

Loved the lake! There was limited parking at the trail head with a dirt road to the trail head. I should have used snow boots/shoes. I went 10/16/18 and it was slushy with the top of the trail all snow and lake was frozen.

Beautiful views & scenery most of the way. Went in October and bit more snow than expected!
But beautiful once you get to the lake. I wore running shoes and it was okay but hiking shoes would have made it easier!

Went on this hike back in 4/2017. It had a ton of snow which make it slippery and difficult but well worth it. The lake was frozen and beautiful! I highly suggest either going with no snow or wearing appropriate footwear! Would love to check it out again in the summer.

Challenging steady to moderate climbs. 3-4 stops that are beautifully breathtaking. The final destination point is fully gratifying. Strongly recommend this trail.

Good hike, did it with my 3 kids (10/8/6). Some great waterfalls to check out on the trail up to Lost Lake. Would recommend parking at the shuttle lot as parking is limited at the trail head. Trail to Lost Lake gets a little steep but nothing too bad. Had lunch up at the lake before heading back down.

We hiked this trail on Oct 1. Path cuts through and near aspen groves or pine forest the entire length. Steady climb with a long uninterrupted stretch in the middle of the route that was fairly steep walking. Beautiful wide open view in two points along the way as well as at the summit. As a others have noted the trail signs never call this trail by the name here so keep your AllTrails app open at the trailhead and at the trail split after about a half mile. Cell coverage throughout (AT&T). Great trail!

A good bit of pavement to actually get to trailhead, then heavily trafficked. Good trail if your staying in Beaver Creek, otherwise there are better options.

overall this hike was very pretty, aspens were bright and the streams/lakes were great! the trail is all rocks, most smooth and loose so sometimes footing was sketchy (esp with excited dogs pulling!) but it was fine. It's kinda steep in spots, but took my time and did fine. My dachshund however did not appreciate steep rocky parts, but he was a trooper. It was extremely windy and chilly but it is definitely worth going all the way to the lake. Beautiful! not very crowded except for a few groups of people but mostly all to myself.
The best part of this hike was the descent! Almost walked past a moose and her calf next to the trail, they were so quiet. It was amazing!

this hike is a 99% incline uphill 3+ miles so be prepared for that. also be prepared that 80% of the hike you are looking out to not step in horse poop. it's a horse trail and human trail so constantly looking on the ground. other than That! beautiful views and a gorgeous lake at the top. you will be tired coming down and sore the next day!

About a mile in, we chose the right hand trail that is closer to the stream. This portion of the trail is not maintained at all and is barely visible. We had at least 30 downed trees to climb over or under. My only real complain was getting shredded by raspberry bushes. Thankfully we had our trusty all trail map to make sure we were still on the trail or so we would have been very confused. The family ahead of us took same route and were very unhappy.

Fantastic colors right now! Be sure to turn on your All Trails map because the TH sign isn't even for Lionshead. It is game creek and then at the trail junction it is cougar ridge.

Great trail, lovely lake. If you are planning to camp, beware of the bear! Resident bear is GREAT at ripping your bear hang out of the trees. Bring a bear can for your food. The night I camped out, every site lost their food as the bear visited us one at a time. Shy enough to leave campers alone, but took out the entire branch our food was hanging off of and ate everything.

Hiked nearly to the lake, had to turn around due to time. The last portion of hike (past the tree with grave marker/cant miss it) is mostly uphill. Lots to see on this hike, variety of terrain, plenty of shade, beautiful views.

Great scenic trail, moderate traffic all day. Hiked up to a ridge between hilltops-spectacular views for 50 miles in every direction. Lionshead rock was on the way, about 1/3 of the way up the one hill.

Short and sweet AMAZING hike! (This is a reverse version of Lost Lake via Hessie Trail.. lol) A lot of people, parking wars. You have a choice of taking the shuttle too but not sure exactly where the shuttle station is. No fee to get in, short but rough hike, so no flip flops, folks! You can walk around the lake, swim, or some people had a tent out. Amazing view, must go trail!! 80% shade by the way.

This was a very nice hike! It is about 2.0 miles to the lake, with easy-moderate hills the whole way, and it is basically in the shade the whole way. The lake itself is very pretty and a great place for a dog to go swimming and cool off. It would also be a gorgeous place to have a picnic.

Pretty trail. Nice views. Wide open spaces. Lots of sun exposure. Not heavily trafficked today considering the holiday weekend.

Nice hike. The distance is much closer to 5 miles one way to the lake. Steady climb the whole way

Awesome trail!! Uphill the entire way to the lake but very scenic and interesting. The lake was beautiful! A great place to have a picnic!
