The trail is very well shaded by the countless number of trees. Not a great view of the town anywhere along the trail except for the very top, AAAmazing view of beaver creek village! If you're looking for a quick getaway from the city, this trail is perfect. Lots of dogs and friendly people.

We did this hike with our 2 and 4-year-olds - mostly piggy backing on the way up. Gorgeous hike, the creek crossing is picturesque.

Quick trail up to the Beav that wasn't very busy for a mid-day hike on a Friday in July. Not a bunch of views but lots of wildlife. The best part is the river crossing that is close to the top of the trail. First bit of the trail is deceiving, it does get steeper and a little tougher the farther you go up. Nonetheless, an easy trail for anyone, at any age to give a shot.

Nice easy walking trail. Only really gets a bit steep at the top near the ski run. Not many long views to be had, but if you are interested in a wooded trail this is worth walking at least once.

We hiked this from the entry to the Eagle Vail trail near the Shop and Hop. We hiked with a 6 and 9 year old. Once we reached Beaver Creek ski boundary and Cinch we walked down to Beaver Creek for Bunge jumping. Quite a challenge for the 6 year old, but he hoeing in there. Called Uber for a ride home once we had drinks and snacks at the C Bar.

For hikers this is a easy to moderate hike, mostly in the shade. When you get to the bridge you are more than halfway to the top. At the top you come out on Beaver Creek ski run "Cinch", the view at the top is of Cinch Village.

For mountain bikers, start in Beaver Creek Village take either the gondola up or "Cinch" fire road, the opening to the trail is near a fire cache to your right. Single track all the way down until the trailhead. To bike back to Beaver Creek, take Eagle Road to Highway 6 go West until you get to the parking lot in Avon.
