The last review is right. It has the hike staring at the bottom of Lift 10 but you can't access that. You start in Beaver Creek Village and have about a 1.5 mile hike to get to where this says it starts. The trail goes past Beaver Lake so you can follow from where that hike starts. It was about 15.5 miles for us total. The hardest part is to Beaver Lake, the climb after that is very gradual. The trail is wet, along streams the entire way and has great wildflowers. I've hiked this several times and once ran into hikers that we're running from a bear (I never saw it) and have heard from many hikers that they've seen moose on the trail (never saw them either). I have however run into some scary lightening storms a few times. I try to be off that mountain by 1:00.
