Pretty view of the mummy range at the beginning of the trail. Then the trail is along the beaver creek. Current conditions- very snowy (micro spikes absolutely necessary and still lots of postholing)

My friend and I hiked this trail when we went camping at Jack's Gulch. There were an innumerable amount of wildflowers, a little mud, and a beautiful stream. The trail was lined with delicious wild strawberries and wet bushes that dampened our legs. Very shady and green hike. We didn't see anyone the entire time probably because of the slightly wet weather, but we enjoyed our time nonetheless. The scenery changes from forest to aspen grove to meadow were lovely surprises that changed my girlfriend's life. We love nature. Keep an eye for the cool rocks with SUPER soft moss and if you are into shrooming there are several species that line the trail. Thanks nature for a great day!

Went on this trail last Saturday. Started at jacks gulch going on old flowers road and looped back onto Little Beaver (7 miles logged). Minimal snow was present and the river was flowing. Only saw one other group, and also saw some bear tracks.

Great trail. Started from Jack's campground following the trail along the creek. We made it a circuit by returning on old flowers trail and road to make it a 10.6 mile trek. Lots of water for the dogs.

A really nice trail. We started from Jacks Gulch Campground and wound our way down to the junction w Fish Creek Trail, then a long steady climb up to Beaver Park. Kept dog close since it definitely looked like mountain lion country. Came back via Flowers Trail/Road. Don’t miss the monument to the B17 crew at the end of the Flowers Road before it turns to trail only. Nice remembrance to those that died in the crash. The actual plane crash is located on the Stormy Peaks trail.

Hiked in from Fish Creek TH. Great forest hike along a good year round stream. Bring the fishing pole. Condition of the trail was good. On the return met a couple of Poudre Wilderness Volunteers doing trail maintenance, but no one else. Great organization. Beaver Ponds at Beaver Park are very cool.

I solo hiked from Jacks Gulch campground to Beaver Park just past the Flowers trail intersect, camped and returned the next day. A nice secluded trail along the creek. Encountered a small group of cattle on trail both days. LOTS of cow pies and horse apples on trail. A few nice views along the way, plenty of shade and thick green near the creek with small groups of aspens and prairie scattered in. Rock formations towards the end to explore.

Nice trail especially if you are looking to de-stress from a rough week at work. There is a constant sound of the running creek as you are hiking this trail. It's so relaxing!! There is a lot of nature we did see a deer, many types of wildflowers, mushrooms and a squirrel. The trail is a moderate trail with a few rocks and slight climbs. This trail is used by horses frequently so watch where you step. The road to the trail is quite bumpy and needs maintained.
