The beaver lake hike is amazing. I decided to get after it kind of last minute today and made it from the parking garage to top in 1.5 hours. There was some snow at the top portion of the trail but overall not that bad. Beautiful lake!

An uphill climb with some snowy areas that made it tougher (took us about 2.5 hours to get up) but gorgeous the whole way and the lake was beautiful. Memorial Day weekend was perfect for a hike almost by ourselves - highly recommend taking this challenge!

Lots of uphill. Rocks, terrain. So green. Water flowing everywhere. Bridges to cross. Lake is very calm and beautiful. Elevation 9700 feet. Feels like 4 miles straight up hill.

Hiked this trail today. No one on the trail. This clocked 6.25 miles out and back from the base of the Centennial Lift. The lake starting to freeze over in some parts, but overall still a beautiful destination.

Good morning hike, in the afternoon the sun setting makes it hard to enjoy the beautiful lake!

Must park at beaver creek village public parking. 6 miles round trip from parking to lake uphill whole way. Beautiful aspen field and fall colors. Weaving under ski runs. Nice hike.

75% in the shade. A lot of up, however, along a very nice creek the entire way. Lake is beautiful and worth the effort.
