Beaver Creek Loop Trail
Here is a fun hike in the 27,000-acre Beaver Creek Wilderness Study Area. Rugged mountains, an incredible diversity of plant and animal life, and a beautiful rushing creek highlight this loop. The trail offers big climbs and long descents, and the end of the trail quietly follows a gulch filled with huge trees, high canyon walls, and a peppering of wildflowers. This area also boasts one of the richest wildlife habitats in Colorado, including one of the greatest concentrations of mountain lions in the state. Keep your eyes peeled for the likes of bighorn sheep, mule deer, elk, black bear, and bobcat, as well. Skies above are graced with peregrine falcons, hawks, and eagles.
