We're staying in Avon/BC and decided on staying nearby for our final hike of our vacation. Wanted to make a day-ish out of it. This was perfect. We made it an almost 13 mile hike by walking from the Westin over to Bachelor Gulch and...More

Great hike and beautiful views from top to bottom, but man its a long haul and uphill. Not for the faint of heart in any way shape or form.

This is a moderately easy trail that has sun, shade, views, and a nice destination. I happened upon it from information on the internet since the Beaver Creek hiking map was really useless--it is just a repurposed ski map.

Convenient trail head from village; about a mile along 5 Senses Trail. Moderate, some rocky areas. At times trail runs along creek, love the sounds. Great aspen and conifer groves

Not a bad hike up to Beaver Lake...its a nice spot in which you can easily spend a day if you wanted to. I think most hike up and back down. We saw a couple of deer, that didn't run away when we passed them...More

There is a beautiful lake at the top. It was worth the long hot walk up the mountain. You feel like you are in paradise when you get there.

It is a 3-4 hour hike, but well worth it when you get to the lake at the top. It took us, at a slow pace about 2:15 to get to the lake. It took about 1:15 to get down. If you do the hike,...More

This is a rocky trail that leads you up a steady incline to the lake. It is not particularly scenic but once you see the lake you can hop on the Elk Trail that takes you across some breathtaking views and ride the chair lift...More

Sorry I didn't notice your question sooner, but the Vail area does have wildflowers. Hopefully you enjoyed them on your travels.

We did it in November, so it's definitely doable in the winter, but make sure you have the right boots to do it.
