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

We hiked about a mile in and back. It was pretty and as other reviewers said it starts off easy and gets more difficult as you continue down the trail. We pushed a stroller for the first 1/2 mile or 2/3 mile but left it behind when things got harder. Biggest complaint about the trail was all the flies swarming us every time we paused for the briefest moment.

This area is extremely beautiful with lots of wildflowers. The hike starts off fairly easy along the dirt path from the parking area. The climb is gradual and not to strenuous. There are a wide variety of wildflowers along the trail as well as a small stream that you cross.
