We took this tail from Allie's trail to head back down. Beautiful trail but LOTS of horse poop on the trail which makes it hard to find places to walk since it's everywhere.

We've done this one a couple times and it's such a wonderful, reasonable hike if you're looking for a beautiful wooded lake at the end! The first portion is a wide horse trail, which is steep, but easy going.

Make sure to pack a lunch and work your way around the lake to bask on one of the big rocks at the edge of the lake!

Nice hike worth for the lake . if you want to have fun, I recommend doing the loop through Royal Elk trail. There are two ways to do it: you can start from Beaver Creek village through the Five Senses Trail, to Beaver Lake and then back through Royal Elk trail or you can take the Centennial Gondola and hike Royal Elk down to the lake and then down to the village. the first option is uphill all the way while the 2nd is much easier as going downhill most of the way. it all depends on your fitness level !

Fun hike in and out to Beaver Lake! Elevation gain can be a bit much for those not used to the high altitude, but still enjoyable!

Amazing up and back hike with beautiful scenery, great wildlife and a stunning mountain lake to camp or just have lunch and head back.

It was a lovely hike with the reward of the beautiful lake at the end… Be sure to hike to the other end of the lake to see the little waterfall :-)

Fairly straightforward trail - the lake is worth the trip. Beautiful lake - trees - great photos!

Beaver Lake is a great payoff at the end of a short hike! Takes me a little less than 2 hours from the village to the lake. Then you can cut across the ski slopes for about an hour and get a ride down on the goldola from spruce saddle.

What I liked: shady, steep trail with nice views and beautiful lake at top. Trail follows creek the whole way, so you get a nice soundtrack. If you don't fancy walking the boring road for the mile from village, get dropped off at trailhead instead.
