Description

From the Mitchell Lake TH, the Beaver Creek Trail #911 climbs into the Indian Peaks Wilderness. After a few switchbacks, the trail circles the ridge and intersects with the Mount Audubon Trail #913. The Beaver Creek Trail then continues northward for 3.4 miles, descends the northeastern flank of the mountain on a nice graded trail, and drops into Coney Flats.
