Stargaze Point sits at 6,682 feet, on a wind-swept nob with 360-degree mountain views. The hike is about 1.5 miles one way from the Beaver Creek parking lot. The trail isn’t groomed but it’s well-marked by blue signs and was packed down for our visit by the people who have been using the nearby Stargaze Yurt. The elevation gain is about 800 feet.

Summer hike with a 9 year old, a 3 year old in an Osprey backpack carrier, and the wife. Was disappointed that the “trail” is just a truck path to the Yurt at the top, but the views were fantastic. Great, easy hike.
