This is a very pleasant hike and very close to Beaver Creek. We went with a toddler and the path is comfortable with consistent coverage from the trees. After .5 miles in it forks and we took it straight down to the little stream. Definitely a good pay off with a toddler.

Nice hike, nice stream you can cool off in if u dare. When you come fork in the trail, you can go straight or it loops around to the right and reconnects with the main trail don't take it, it's over grown and almost impassable, I almost turned back because I couldn't see the trail, some hikers when descending on the main trail and I spotted them and got back on the main trail. Otherwise nice mostly shaded trail with some climbing too

Loved it! Beautiful walk with some lovely stops by the stream. Worth taking a few hours to try this

Great hike, especially in the spring when the aspens are super green or in the fall when the leaves are changing. If you have two cars you can easily loop the trail and come down through Beaver Creek.

Beautiful. Lots of neat things to see along the way. Wildflowers, stream. Then you pop out on the lower cinch ski trail

It's a gorgeous trail. It's much better as a hike for me, being that I live at 4500 ft. and did a triathlon yesterday. The creek was a nice treat for sore feet. ☺

There’s better hikes in the Beaver Creek/Vail area. This one is pretty much in the trees the whole time and drops you off on a service road in beaver creek.

Great hike. Moderate and in the shade the entire time. Keep an eye out for bikers flying down the trail. Only complaint is that there's not much of a grand finish. You sort of get to the end and it's a ski slope halfway up the hill. Still beautiful and would definitely do again.

Took an hr and 20 min to get there and about 45 min to get down because we saw a bear right next to the stream by the bridge. Be careful
