Stephanie K. on Nottingham Lake
would be nice to have creek alongside
Great for kids. Loved being able to rent pedal boats, SUP boards, etc. Nice shady picnic spots and playground...having a swim area was an added bonus! Scooter and bike friendly---especially great for younger kids! Definitely a hidden gem in town----but not a hike by any means....a leisurely walk with lots to do for everyone in our family. We spent the afternoon here and will definitely come back!
We hiked from the base of the Gondola in Beaver Creek Village and took the Overlook trail. This trail is rated as moderate. The trail basically switchbacks up the ski runs through Aspen groves and some other thick forests. Very pretty, but is is a pretty steady incline, so be ready. Took us about 2 hrs to get to the top and we were sweating pretty good when we got there.
