“An easy amble from the Elk Parking Lot to Beaver Creek Village.
— Megan W
Though you can park in the Beaver Creek village for free (in summer), AND you can take a free shuttle from the start of this path at the Elk Parking Lot to the village, this is still a nice way to stretch your legs. This paved path has benches and water fountains. Or if you're visiting from sea level, it might even count as a workout by itself!
Follow along next to the verdant golf course with lovely flowers, mostly hugging the Village Road. Once you get close to the Beaver Creek village and cross the road, you'll enter the manicured grounds with flower gardens and it's all very pleasant. Views improve with the ascent.
Note: this trail is open to bikes.
