Beaver Brook trail starts in Golden and climbs up to around 7000 ft looking down onto Clear Creek as it moves through north forested slopes. After beautiful vistas it drops into Beaver Brook itself before climbing out to Chief Hosa. The trail on the west side drops down into Beaver Brook, then climbs back out to the top of a 7800' peak so there is a fair amount of climb on that side. The east side if you start at Windy Gap is fairly level although there are scramble and scree piles to climb over.

I was mostly alone for the 11 mile hike (which I love). Got crowded the closer I got to Lookout mountain Trail. Amazing lookout views! Beautiful forest! Saw a family of Mule Deer! Challenging and LOVELY hike! I would recommend hiking in the morning :)))

Amazing trail to go on a hike- brought my dog and we could walk forever. Trails are marked so you can't get lost but there are soo many trails you won't get bored of the sites.
