    Preston Pierce reviewed Beaver Brook and Chavez Trail Loop

    15 days ago

    Perhaps I am becoming a hiking snob but I am surprised this is rated as highly as it is. I’d give it a 3.5/5 but it isn’t worthy of four stars in my book. The middle portion of the trail is enjoyable and has mixed terrain, there is a nice creek that runs through as well which adds to the scenery. And even though the parking lot was slammed by the time I left, I didn’t feel there were too many people on the trail. Nevertheless, the first third and last third of the trail were relatively bland, a nice nature walk but not a great hike. It might serve better for a trail run. The rating of moderate is fair for that middle portion of the hike, the rest is easy. The best part of the hike is how close to the city it is, but if you lay that aside I can’t say it matches up to the amazing hikes we have around here. A quick escape, worth going to once if you don’t have better options or time for a route further in the mountains.

    Very enjoyable hike, not very difficult and it didn’t feel like 7 miles. Some great views and changes of scenery along the way, I would recommend it and will be back sometime, though won’t be chomping at the bit to get back.

    Preston Pierce reviewed Hallett Peak

    Did this hike a couple weeks back and it was fantastic. My hiking buddy and I got a little light headed as we approached the top and summitted Hallett likely due to keeping too fast a pace (and only 4 hours of sleep...). Beautiful hike, be careful of afternoon storms but if you watch weather reports you’ll be fine. This is aptly rated as difficult but it isn’t extremely challenging. We took the shuttle at about 7am on a Saturday, the trailhead lot was 100% full. Highly recommend the shuttle, it also ran more than every 30 mins as listed on the website.
